The “Rose of Tralee Run” took place at the end of August 1979 and had a stop at the Castleross Hotel in Killarney. During that stop the late Tom Twohill suggested to P.J. O Riordan that there was enough interest in vintage cars in Kerry to form our own club. Enthused by the suggestion P.J. seized on the moment and called a meeting of those interested to take place a few weeks later at Farranfore Airport. Read More..
