On Sunday next 16th June, Thurles & District Vintage Club with the aid of Devils Bit Macra will hold a hugely popular Fun Day and Vintage Display (by kind permission of the Russell Family on the Roscrea Rd )

The day will start with a Tractor Run leaving Templemore Square at 11am. The route will wind its way up the Devils Bit with its beautiful scenery. There will be a pit stop in Gortagarry. It will then continue back down under the Cross through Barnane and take up position in Russells Field. While on this Run, get a companion to bring a camera – on a fine day u can see right down to Cashel on one side, and you can glimpse Kilkenny at other side. The run will take approx. 3 hours and food will be provided for all drivers.

A huge array of vintage items will be on display in Russell’s field - all those items that were used by our parents & grand parents so lovingly restored for future generations to enjoy.

If anybody has anything they would like to display, do please feel free to bring it along on the day.

There will be with plenty of attractions for everyone, with tug of war, sheaf throwing, skittles, wellie throwing, Horse shoe throwing, Childrens tug of war with a tractor, pets corner, smack the rat, brick-a-brack, bouncing castles cake sale, cake raffle and many more items.
