That’s Farming visited Shrule and District Vintage Club’s annual vintage show and monster autojumble on Sunday, September 10th, 2023.
The event formed a display of vintage cars, tractors, farm machinery, stationary engines, modified cars, commercial vehicles, a dog show, children’s entertainment, live music with Break Free and jiving and waltzing competitions.
The annual event was initially set to take place on July 9th, 2023; however, was rescheduled for a later date of September 10th, 2023, on foot of ground and weather conditions.
The event took place in conjunction with the Ireland West Truck Show in an adjacent field in Glencorrib, in aid of this year’s chosen charity partner, Daisy Lodge Centre, Cong, Co Mayo.
The Daisy Lodge Centre provides respite accommodation for the parents of children who have been diagnosed with cancer.
Prizes were allocated for the best Scania, Volvo, Merc, Man, Renault, Hino, Iveco, Daf, Rigid, Fleet, Light Commercials and Truck of the Show and each driver received a show memento plaque and a meal voucher.
The show entry fee was set at €30/truck and organisers reported to www.thatsfarming.com that the 2023 turnout of vehicles was “the best on record”.
The truck show, now in its third year, was limited to modern vehicles (non-vintage) – tractor units (no trailers) and rigid trucks only.
Take a look at some of the footage that we captured of the vintage section:
