All roads lead to Blarney for the August Bank Holiday weekend when Blarney Square will become the temporary home to more than 100 classic and vintage cars. The inaugural Classic and Vintage Car show has drawn entries from all over Ireland, and overseas, and will be a wonderful opportunity to take a closer look at some of the worlds most sought after and admired cars. The cars will assemble on Sunday morning, August 1st, and the festivities will continue late into the night when a street dance festival will take place. This ‘Mardi Gras’ style event starts at 7pm in the grounds of Blarney Woollen Mills Hotel and will go on into the night. The cars will be on display in The Square (adjacent to the world famous Blarney Castle) on Bank Holiday Monday also.
This event, organised by Maranatha Country House owners Douglas and Olwen Venn, with the support of the newly formed and enthusiastic Blarney Chamber of Commerce, is just one of a number of fantastic events that have been happening in Blarney throughout the Summer. The show will also raise funds for Blarney youth initiatives including the Blarney Summer of Music and the Blarney Youth Cafe project, which was recently recognized as the most successful transition year project in Ireland.
