The car run begins from the Gleneagle/Brehon Hotel, Killarney at 11am on Saturday, May 24th, and will set off on a route over Molls Gap and the Tim Healy Pass to a rest halt in Castletownbere, returning to Kenmare via Cods Head and Kilmackillogue for a well deserved meal in the Brook Lane Hotel.
This years charity is the Kerry/Cork Health Link Bus. Anne’s brothers, Declan, John and Martin and their friends in the Irish Escort Owners club organise the annual event along with Anne’s husband Billy.
The first run in 2010 raised €4,500 for the palliative care unit in Kerry General Hospital. The following year, €2,500 was raised for the Southern Branch of MS Ireland and last years run raised €3,200 for Reach Out Cancer Support, based in Millstreet.
The run is open to all makes of classic car with a minimum entry fee of €20 euro and pictures will be available to purchase after the run thanks to Jim McSweeney Photography, Kanturk.
