This being the 39th Vintage Rally in Charleville promises to be as entertaining as ever.
Held on 24th June it has a reputation as one of the Largest vintage shows in Ireland and the "one" to be at. This year promises to be at its best. A little more concentration is to be given to the working arena to create a buzzing atmosphere with timber sawing driven by steam engine and steam driven stone crusher. Of course not to be outdone we will have old time threshing and baling in operation. Beet pulping and wood carving will also feature. These will be backed up by numerous stationary engines and displays of old time machinery.
Not to be outdone we also have a massive display of other makes and models of cars and tractors from far and nearby individual people and representing clubs such as Cortina Mercedes NSU Mini Nenagh Killkenny Shrule Duhallow Limerick Clare Kerry Cork Tipperary and Waterford our local Charleville club to name a few. We also will have a fine display of trucks and have some newly restored vehicles using Charleville as their first outing are bound to create a stir of interest. Trade stands this year we are going for more quality than quantity and Charleville is known to be the place to get that elusive part. Finally and not least we remember the late Dick Bradley with a perpetual memorial cup presented by the Bradley family to a friend who has supported us and him for many a vintage year
