The organisers of this year's Clohamon Vintage Day were delighted with the success of the event.

Local group The Bridies provided plenty of laughs and a lot of attention focused on the mobile bog cottage where John Howard cooked up plenty of bacon and cabbage throughout the day.

Speaking to this newspaper about the event, one of the organisers, Caroline Fortune, said it was a great success.

The committee is very grateful to the businesses and local people who supported the event.

'There was a big turnout and a lot of vintage cars, bikes and machinery,' said Caroline.

The Bog Cottage will be returning to the event next year - which will take place on August 16.

Local groups like Bunclody Market traders, re-enactment groups and Normans who got 'lost' trying to find Ferns Castle added to the fun.

Around €1,000 was raised and the money will go towards the village development fund.
