Easter Monday sees giant auto jumble in Virginia

The Virginia-based Windmill Vintage Tractor and Machinery Club will host one of the largest auto jumbles and collectors’ fairs in many years, at the new Virginia Show Centre’s arena this Easter Monday (April 21).

One of the first-ever Farm Models and Diorama Shows to take place in county will run simultaneously to the vintage event, which will host auto jumblers, antique dealers and collectors from all over Ireland and England, as well as some of Ireland’s best-known modellers.
John Clancy told The Anglo-Celt that there has not been an event of this scale staged in the area in many years, and he expects the Farm Models Diorama show to prove a great attraction. One local, Martin Bolger from Kingscourt, is set to display his collection - reputed to be one of the biggest collections in Ireland. They will be joined by the Goldricks from Kilnaleck and Noel and Cian McGovern from Killinkere.

Successful
The Windmill Vintage Club was only formed in 2011 and 2013 was their most successful year, having raised approximately €7,000 in the past year for various cancer charities. The Club looks forward to the continued support of the public for this event, which is €5 for adults with children free. The show runs from noon-5pm and for further information contact Stanley on 086 323 5435 or John on 087 6329 362.

€50 for 6 months (24 editions) of the Anglo Celts. Ideal gift for those who have everything. Subscribe for free here.
