Glenamaddy Equestrian Centre will once again be a hive of activity this Sunday (20th) as the North Galway Vintage and Heritage Club hosts its sixth annual Vintage and Heritage Show, which will be open to the public from 10 am.
All vintage vehicles pre-1988 are welcome this year and the show will also feature a celebration of Huddersfield’s famous David Brown tractors.
Speaking at the recent launch of this year’s show, North Galway Vintage and Heritage Club PRO, Peter Greaney, said Glenamaddy is the perfect venue for this year’s show.
“The equestrian centre gives us more space, both indoor and outdoor, for our exhibitors, with plenty of solid ground parking also. There will be an extended menu of food and beverages available on the day as well.
“This year Joanna and Tequila Sunrise will be providing us with live entertainment from 2 pm to 4 pm so make sure to bring your dancing shoes! Visitors will remember Joanna and the band from the good old days in the Sound of Music in Glenamaddy.
“This year we will be celebrating David Brown and as usual there will be plenty of activity in the working field, displaying the many talents from days gone by.
“For the younger age groups we have the Kiltimagh Pet Farm who will be bringing along a wide variety of domestic and exotic animals for you to meet. They will also be providing pony rides on the day. There will be a fun fair and amusements on the day too,” he said.
Peter was quick to point out that there was more to this year’s show than the vintage and heritage displays.
“There will be up to 30 vintage trucks travelling from all around Europe attending Sunday’s show and they can be seen throughout the day. John McGann will also be bringing his four completely restored prize winning tractors to the show for the very first time. He has won numerous awards across Ireland and overseas for these tractors. Apart from the vintage, some of our motor, tractor and machinery dealers will be displaying their range of new products.
“We would also like to welcome and thank our main sponsor, Mannion’s Mace Supermarket and Top Oil Service Station, Tuam, Pamlube and Reddilift.
“Finally, I would like to invite you all to what will be a great day out for all, both young and old. Our chosen charity this year is Down Syndrome Ireland and all support would be greatly appreciated,” he concluded.
