Time is moving on, the Emo, Scotland and Mount Congreve events are done already. We spent most of our evening in the Kingsley Hotel talking about upcoming items in our calendar:
Some photos of Mount Congreve Gardens from our day trip last Sunday, 9th June. We were lucky the day was very nice and everyone enjoyed it. After a walk through the gardens we went to Kilmacthomas where we had lunch in what was the old Workhouse. It’s on the Waterford Greenway, so there were lots of bikes and walkers. The restaurant is called The Coach House and the food was great. All credit to Michael for finding out about it, and he had pre booked it for us for lunch.

It was a nice summer’s evening in the Kingsley Hotel on Wednesday night – lots of walkers and cyclists making the most of the riverside amenities. Can’t be long before the kayakers are spotted as well.
Four cars represented our club on the organised trip by the Jaguar Enthusiast Club (Fife & Tayside region). Also joining the trip were our friends from the Irish Jaguar & Daimler Club and the Jaguar Drivers Club area 30 N.I. We departed on the P&O ferry from Larne to Cairnryan at 1.30pm on Thursday arriving in less than two hours. Our first stop was in Irvine for an overnight stay, the following morning we headed to Pitlochery in Perthshire, by-passing Glasgow city on route. After checking into the hotel we explored the very pretty town of Pitlochery. At 6.30pm we met for drinks for the official start of the event and dinner followed at 7pm. Following dinner Terry McDougal, our host, outlined our itinerary for the weekend.
A letter sent by the Fife and Tayside branch of the JEC, welcoming members to Scotland for the 3rd to 6th May trip is available here: Pitlochry Brochure 2019.
Summer is nearly here, the weather is picking up – time to make the most of the opportunities to get the cars out. That was the context of our April meeting, where we discussed:
The Kingsley Hotel was buzzing tonight, but we got our regular spot for our meeting in the lounge area. Great to see a few people at the meeting that we hadn’t met up with for a while.
