The Kingsley Hotel was buzzing on a bright April evening for our monthly meeting:
A small group turned out (must be the time of the year!). Items discussed:
- Discussion of numbers and arrangements for Emo trip.
- Update from John O’Driscoll on plans with Jaguar Heritage to bring an interesting car to the Classic Car Show in Dublin in July.
The AGM for the Irish Region of the Jaguar Enthusiast Club was held on Sunday 28th January 2018, at the Garryvoe Hotel, Cork. It was held directly after a belated but much enjoyed Christmas Lunch at the same location.
We met for our last meeting of 2017 in the Kingsley Hotel – not to say that we won’t meet again for the rest of the year, but the November meeting will be in Jonathan and Eirin’s house, followed within a few weeks by the Christmas lunch in early December. Then our next formal meeting will be in January to agree the 2018 Calendar of Events. Anyway, this is what we talked about tonight:
The latest from the Kingsley Hotel…
There was a hint of Autumn in the air as we met in the lounge of the Kingsley hotel on Wednesday:
26th Classic & Vintage Motor Show Terenure July 2017
Once again our club took a stand at the Terenure Show and as in many years in the past we were fortunate in getting a car over from the Jaguar and Daimler Heritage Trust in the U.K. This year the car we chose was the XJ6C 5.3 Broadspeed, with 550BHP it proved to be a great success and as in the past the two volunteers Stuart McEvoy and Rodger Atkinson accompanied the car. This year Spirit Motor Company (our friendly Jaguar dealer) is in the process of a major re-furbishment at their Arena Road showroom and, although this was going on, the Broadspeed was at the showrooms on the Friday and Saturday before the show.
