Happy mo­tor­ing on the quayfront

Wexford People - - NEWS - By ES­THER HAY­DEN

THOU­SANDS flocked to Wex­ford quayfront over the Bank Hol­i­day week­end to check out all the lat­est car mod­els avail­able in Ire­land.

The Wex­ford Mo­tor Show has been a ma­jor at­trac­tion over the last num­ber of years and the glo­ri­ous weather brought large crowds to the area.

There was some­thing for every­one over the two day event re­gard­less of whether you were look­ing for new 182 model or in­ter­ested in the cars of yesteryear.

The show pro­vided a per­fect op­por­tu­nity for those in the mar­ket to browse the var­i­ous brands avail­able and view the com­pet­ing mod­els side-by-side rather than hav­ing to travel from showroom to showroom.

This year’s show which drew crowds of al­most 20,000 had the big­gest ever mo­tor busi­ness par­tic­i­pa­tion in the coun­try with 21 fran­chise deal­ers and 27 brands rep­re­sented.

There was also plenty of fun at­trac­tions for chil­dren with mu­sic, clowns, Dis­ney char­ac­ters, face paint­ing, a climb­ing wall and kids area.

The char­i­ties sup­ported were the RNLI, Down Syn­drome Ire­land and the Spe­cial Olympics. The show was or­gan­ised by the lo­cal mo­tor re­tail­ers and the So­ci­ety of the Ir­ish Mo­tor In­dus­try with sup­port from Wex­ford lo­cal au­thor­i­ties, the Gardaí and the RSA.
