Have you a Vintage Car or tractor, and itching to get it out for a final run, (or for some, the first) before the summer ends?
Donegal Railway Heritage Centre is holding its famous annual Vintage Run on Sunday 15th August, starting at the Railway Centre in Donegal Town, Tyrconnell Street, just below Donegal Castle, and ending at Biddy O’Barnes. This annual event, in aid of the Museum itself starts with Registration at the museum at 12noon, and start at one. This year we have a new route which will take in a scenic drive around Donegal and will finish at Biddy’s with a coffee and sandwich. Last year’s rally which was one of only a handful in the County included a terrific range of vintage cars and tractors, as well as a few modern tractors. Entry fee per vehicle is €20 with all funding going directly to the upkeep of the community museum, which, like many other attractions, had suffered a loss of income, after being closed because of Covid for 5 months last year and 4.5, this year!
Social distancing will be in operation, and in fact drivers don’t even need to get out of their vehicles to take part in the event! Simply turn up on the day at 12noon at the museum; the run starts at 1pm.
