have attached photos from Llandudno, photos 182 to 218 are from our Friday tour to Llangollen where we visited the Llangollen Motor Museum and the Llangollen Railway where were given a guided tour of the workshops, these are not normally open to the public, so we were given a guided tour by George Jones, who spoke for almost an hour on the history and the work that the railway undertakes, everyone greatly enjoyed the tour. the other photos were taken around the show and over the weekend, the last photo shows that we all "just made it" back to the boat, cheers
Danesfort Field Day and Kilkenny Motor Club, Our "Big One" was a great success due in no small part to the hardwork of Paul, Brian, Declan & Declan and everyone who helped out on the day. Thankfully the morning rain was light and the afternoon opened up nicely. Thanks especially to the Carlow and Abbeyleix Clubs for coming along and bringing so many vehicles.
Yet again the Llandudno show was a resounding success, with Saturday and Sunday bringing glorious sunshine and an even bigger show than ever. Though the Autojumble was not as good as in previous years, the members of KMC who travelled over thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Undoubtedly one of the stars of the show was Owen Mahony's Mighty MINI, simply superb was the universal judgement by all and is a credit to Owen and all who contributed to this project.
We had a great turnout for our Spring run on Sunday 12th April, we started off with a display in Kilkenny Castle at which we were joined by members of ” The Celtic Old Vehicles Owners Club” from Co. Meath and the surrounding counties, they were in Kilkenny for the weekend. A total of 97 cars were on display with 68 going on the run that followed.
On Sunday 2nd of November we held our Winter Road Run in aid of the "Susie Long Hospice" fund, starting from the courtyard of Kilkenny Castle, itself a very rare privilege we travelled to Tullaroan and the Lory Meagher Homestead and GAA Museum where we had a veritable feast of tea and sandwiches provided by our committee. Over €3500 was raised for this very worthy cause and a very big thank you to everyone who contributed and made this day such a success. www.susielonghospice.com

The Irish final of “The Rose of Tralee” were held in Portlaoise last weekend and someone came up with the idea of a Parade on the Saturday of the 30 or so “lovely ladies” in Vintage cars. So Ballinakill, The Capri and Kilkenny Clubs were called at short notice to supply the cars and some of our lucky members were able to answered the call………..
Our 2nd annual picnic in the park and yet again we were blessed with a beautiful evening, over 40 club members made the short trip from Kilkenny and enjoyed an evening of chat, some tyre kicking and polishing, not forgetting the welcome cup of tea provided by our very hard working committee, thanks again to everyone.
Club members brought 22 car's to Llandudno this year, thanks to everyone who helped make the weekend such a success. The Llandudno Transport Festival is held on the sea-front showground in one of the most picturesque bays of the UK. Llandudno is Wales' largest resort and famed for its Victorian style and Edwardian elegance.
With hardly a rut in sight and or a cow pat under foot / wheel, but so, so cold. Well you can't have everything ?. Full compliments to Austin and his hard working crew for a great and very well organised show, everyone enjoyed the huge numbers and the variety of vehicles on display, roll on 2009 !

January 1st dawned cool and bright but DRY, 27 members and their cars braved the elements and headed off to Rathdowney and Donoghmore on a sponsored Charity run in aid of Sister Muriel of the order of St. Joseph The Worker.
