More than 350 cars gathered at Duckett’s Grove for the vintage show


CARLOW Vintage and Classic Motor club held its second show this year on the grounds of Duckett’s Grove last month.

On Saturday 13 August, club members and visitors assembled at the Woodford Dolmen hotel to start the rally of cars around Carlow town. Onlookers were treated to a procession of nearly 100 cars spanning the last 100 years.

On Sunday 14, the gates of Duckett’s Grove opened at 9am to welcome cars, tractors and exhibitors from all around the country and the UK. More than 350 cars assembled, with traders, entertainment and caterers.

More than 1,600 people came to see a fantastic collection of vehicles and it is one of the premier shows in the country. Bagenalstown’s Teresa Brophy won the coveted Leslie Hunter perpetual trophy with her Toyota MR2 from the 1980s. There were almost 60 winners on the day spread across 15 categories.
