On Saturday the 10th June a small but enthusiastic group assembled at The Kingsley Hotel for our visit to Fort Camden in Crosshaven, Co. Cork, the event having been arranged by our PR Officer John O’Driscoll who was unfortunately unable to attend on the day. John was missed – not least because it meant the rest of us didn’t have the luxury of sitting back and doing what we were told!
Royal Windsor Jaguar Festival
It may have been described as Groundhog Day, but it is still a firm favourite for our members and the weekend of 22/23 April was no exception. I’m referring of course to Ballylickey and The Seaview House Hotel event. For those travelling on the Friday we stopped in Gougane Barra, this is a great location for taking some fantastic photos of your car as the backdrop of the mountains, lake and church are ideal. Leaving Gougane Barra we drove over the gap of Keimaneigh to Bantry where we stopped to see the town market, finally arriving at the hotel at 4pm where we met up with Christie & Mary who had travelled from Galway, dinner that evening followed by an early night.
On Friday 11th November last, 6 club members set off from Dublin airport to Birmingham airport to embark on a memorable trip which included a Jaguar factory visit, a unique restoration experience and a visit to the Coventry Motor Museum. Followed by a day at the Classic Motor show at the NEC.
Once again another great weekend was enjoyed by the 18 members who attended our Ballylickey trip. Lodgings were in Seaview House, and as per usual a very high standard was provided. Exceptional cuisine made up for the inclement weather. Kathleen was her usual pleasant self and made everyone feel very welcome.
