Automobili Italia Tralee event raised €3,500  for the Irish Wheel Chair Association

The recent Automobili Italia Tralee Italian car spectacular raised €3,500  for the Irish Wheel Chair Association.

The organising team made the presentation on Wednesday night last.

Automobili Italia Tralee took place on the weekend of September 16/17 and was open to cars and bikes of Italian origin. It was the first time the event ran and there are hopes that future events will be expanded into a festival of Italian culture in the town.
