The 55th annual steam rally took place at Stradbally, Co. Laois over the August 2019 bank holiday week end and we accepted an invitation to present our Model T ford cars and commercials at as a static display on Sunday.  On the previous evening there was a gigantic parade down the village and we were well represented and well received.

TERENURE 2019

West Cork 16th June 2019.

On Sunday 16th June 2019 the Irish Model T Ford members gathered at Bandon Motors for the Annual Summer Run.
