Clonenagh NS

A fundraising Vintage Run or Clonenagh N.S. Mountrath was held on Saturday, December 28, based at Sheeran’s Pub, Coolrain. The weather was fantastic and this was reflected by the impressive turnout of vehicles, with over 80 participating. There was a tractor run, with over 50 tractors participating, both new and old. There was also a lovely array of vintage cars and a few motorcycles. The run was followed by food and entertainment in Sheeran’s, with the merriment continuing on into the night. There was a raffle and an auction on the night as well. The organisers would like to thank all who supported the day, the sponsors and those who donated items for the auction, as well as all those who gave freely of their time to ensure that the day was so successful.
