Liam Kelly Memorial vintage car race returns to Wicklow
The Garden of Ireland Vintage & Classic Car Club will host the Liam Kelly Memorial Run on Saturday and Sunday September 4 and 5.
lub members are eagerly awaiting the event which had to be canceled last year.
Members missed meeting old and new friends from across the country and as such are eager to catch up.
âDue to the pandemic, we expect this year’s race to be a bit smaller than in previous years,â a club spokeswoman said. “It is, however, very important that we adhere to the current restrictions.”
Saturday’s race will start at the Grove Bar, Willow Grove, Kilpeder, A63XY89, and start at 11 a.m.
The vehicles will take a leisurely drive through the Wicklow Mountains. There will be a lunch break on the way before a visit to historic Wicklow Prison.
Guests will benefit from a guided tour and have the opportunity to experience two centuries of prison life behind the gates of the haunted prison.
Sunday’s Poker Run will start from the Grove Bar at 11:30 am.
Entrance is free for cars registered for the Saturday route, i.e. â¬ 10 per car and two passengers registering on Sunday morning. It’s 5 â¬ for each additional passenger.
