Great Turnout for Millstreet Vintage Club Summer Car Run last Saturday Evening

After a 3 year Break due to Covid 19 Restrictions the Millstreet Vintage Club Summer Car Run made a welcome return back to the MVC Calendar last Saturday Evening, the Event which was again in Aid of Bumbleance Children’s Ambulance Service made its Comeback in fine style with over 90 Cars taking part, 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, then on to the outskirts of Ballydesmond, Quarry Cross, Kilsarcon, 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 favourable for the occasion which added to the atmosphere of the Event and this was followed by Refreshments and Musical Entertainment supplied by the Michelle Murphy Band, Danny Tobin and Heart to Heart at the Finish, again the Bumbleance Ambulance was on display at O’Riadas 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 Anthony Murray in his Toyota Starlet.
