The Irish Adventure
The date of the OldVelos Vintage Classic has been changed to July 14, 2019 to tie it in with the Comeraghs Wild Festival. More information is available in Brendan Hennessy’s article in the forthcoming Winter Gazette. The date change may, of course, not fit in with some plans, and Brendan is conscious of the priority for some of the Thames Valley Quendon Run. Myra and I are still intending to cross over to Ireland for the Classic, and we hope that others will join us. If you are still interested, please let me know and I will keep you informed as more detail of the programme becomes available.

Camping is available at Casey’s Caravan Park, Clonea Strand, Dungarvan, which is some twelve or fifteen miles from Kilmacthomas.
A brief check on the internet suggests there is plenty of accommodation in and around both Waterford and Dungarvan.
