Since 2014, Iveragh Vintage Club has organised events not only to provide a wonderful day out for vintage enthusiasts but also to help numerous local causes.

This year, it once again hosted a successful vintage field day in Waterville – one of the many events it hosts annually. The event was an opportunity for vintage enthusiasts to enjoy vintage vehicles and machinery, which were on display in the village. 

The good weather helped bring a crowd, and organisers were delighted that the event was well-attended.

This year’s field day was held to raise money for the James Quinlan rehabilitation fund, and a cheque of €5,080 was handed over to the Quinlan family recently. All funds will help James recover from a brain haemorrhage he suffered in the US just before Christmas last year. He has now returned to Waterville to recover with his family.

The club has helped various groups over the years, including Cúnamh Iveragh and Valentia Community Hospital, and this year they were delighted to help James. 

Chairman Myles O’Sullivan explained that a few local men were chatting and came up with the idea of forming the club and they approached local retired teacher Denis Fenton to help and together they set up Iveragh Vintage Club and it has been a huge success. Denis was on the committee for many years, and its membership has since grown to 80.
