Millstreet Vintage Tractor Run Launch at Museum

At 7pm this Friday, 22nd April 2022 Members of Millstreet Vintage Club assembled at the West End Car Park beside the Carnegie Hall to officially launch the very special Tractor Run in aid of Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Community Website which will take place on Sunday, 8th May 2022 incorporating a wonderfully scenic route which begins at The Square and continues back Clara Road progressing over the border to the Kingdom and returning home to Millstreet.   Sincere thanks to Millstreet Vintage Club on organising this greatly appreciated fundraising event.  Many thanks to Photographer/Correspondent supreme, John Tarrant for photographing the Launch for later publication on the “Corkman”.  Here we share some 11 images from Friday’s Launch.   Tap on the photos to enlarge.  (S.R.)
