The classic era of motoring in Ireland was recalled in Caim recently when the local vintage club staged its annual rally and road run.

The event, which was a great success, was organised to raise money for Wexford Hospice Homecare, Caim Vintage Club and the local senior citizen's annual outing.

Thankfully, there was fine weather on the day and this added to the overall enjoyment of everyone involved and those who attended.

There was a broad range of vehicles on-site throughout the day and they provided a colourful and diverse aspect to the road run.

In addition to vintage tractors there was a large number of cars and motorcycle involved including trikes which received a lot of attention from visitors.

The success of any initiative like this depends on the support of the wider community and in that regard the organisers of the Caim event were very appreciative of the support they received from local people who always get behind the run.

Whether it was tractors and farm machinery or iconic, vintage cars like Baby Fords and Volkswagen Beatles the rally had something of interest for everyone.

From classic sports cars like MGBs to vintage saloons there was a wide variety of models involved in the run.

When they returned to Caim they formed quite a visual spectacle for visitors and locals who got to view the vehicles up close when they were parked up.

The organisers thanked everyone involved in making the event a success.
