Good vin­tage


Wicklow People (Arklow) - - PICTURES -

THE very first Cool­gre­any Vin­tage Club Trac­tor and Car Run was a great suc­cess last Sun­day with more than 50 par­tic­i­pants.

‘The fine day made it, it went very well,’ said Dan Kennedy, chair­man of the Cool­gre­any Vin­tage Club. ‘We raised about €1,000 for the Cool­gre­any Sup­port Fund.’

Some 50 vin­tage trac­tors and cars gath­ered in Cool­gre­any on Sun­day morn­ing be­fore set­ting off around the roads of North Wex­ford. The trac­tors trav­elled to Arklow, Thomas­town, Johnstown, Croghan, An­nagh, Bal­ly­fad and re­turned back to Cool­gre­any. The cars went on a dif­fer­ent route to Inch, Arklow, Aughrim, Ti­na­hely, An­nagh, Hol­ly­fort, Ki­lanerin, back to Inch and fi­nally re­turned to Cool­gre­any vil­lage.

Dan said re­fresh­ments were served to those who par­tic­i­pated in the vin­tage run when they re­turned from there two hour trav­els. He thanked all of those who took part in the run; vol­un­teers; Gar­daí for their help; and to the com­mu­nity of Cool­gre­any for sup­port­ing the event.
