New for this year’s returning festival was the inclusion of Feile na mBlath which usually takes place over the June weekend.

A total of 22 cars were on display ranging in age from 1938 t0 1996.

“It was very much a family day and the reaction from the general public was unbelievable with many never before seeing the models on display,” said KVVCC secretary Garret Foley.

“As a group, we were very well looked after with all participants receiving a medal and food voucher to use at the events many stalls. The day was very much enjoyed by all who attended, with many coming well prepared with deck chairs and even picnics. Our thanks to Brian Carr for looking after us on the day.”

The oldest car on display was a 1938 Riley which was driven to Tralee from Killarney by one of the club’s longest-serving members. Mike Mc Donagh.
