The Millstreet Vintage Club Summer Car Run was held last Saturday Evening over in Cullen and despite the Weather being a big Challenge with Thunder and Lightning and Torrential Rain prevailing before the start of the Event there was a very impressive 95 Cars signed on for
the Event which was again in Aid of BUMBLEance Children’s Ambulance Service,the starting point was the Cullen Community Centre where the Bumbleance Ambulance was also on display,the Cars left Cullen just after 6pm and made there way on a Scenic Route up to Knocknagree and then on to Ballydesmond, Sugan Road,Cordal and on to Castleisland before heading out the Abbeyfeale Road and then turning left and heading up into some spectacular views of the Countryside that brought the Cars down into the Finish at O`Riadas Bar and Restuarant near Ballymacelligott, the weather was not as favourable on this occasion but the views on this part of the Run never disappoint even on a bad Weather day and once we reached the finish this was followed by Refreshments and Musical Entertainment supplied by Bernie Heaney Barry O Halloran Sheila Heery and Tim Joe O’Riordan.
At the Finish of the Event the Bumbleance Ambulance was again on display at O Riadas Bar Ballymacelligott and a viewing of this very impressive Vehicle gives a person an idea of the great Work and Service this voluntary group carry out for seriously ill Children.
There was an open draw made before the start of the Run in Cullen for a Perpetual Trophy and this was won by Ian O’Connor in his Subaru Legacy.
