Spa Fenit Community Council’s Heritage weekend was celebrated in style at the Churchill Forge and Museum on Saturday and Sunday last.

Always a popular event with the local community and visitors this year’s event exceeded all expectations both with the numbers attending and the varied programme arranged, that seemed to appeal to people of all ages.

On Saturday evening an exceptional array of beautifully maintained Classic Cars took part in the run which departed the Forge in Churchill travelling via Ardfert to Ballyheigue and returning to the Forge in Churchill where all involved were treated to snacks and refreshments.

Over 70 cars took part in the run which was organised by local rally driver Brendan Brosnan.

On Sunday it was the turn of the tractors both vintage and modern, to provide an amazing spectacle of makes and models who travelled in convoy around the parish before returning to Churchill.

“We express our sincere thanks to all who participated in these events, some travelling from Limerick, Cork and from all parts of the County,” the council’s chairman Dermot Crowley.

“The council delighted this year that our association with Fenit RNLI facilitated collection points at Fenit, Ardfert and Ballyheigue.and expressed sincere thanks to all who contributed generously to this very worthy charity.”
