Shamrock Club wins prize at RIAC National Classic Car Show

The Shamrock Car & Machinery Club attended the RIAC National Classic Car show in the RDS Dublin on March 10th and 11th. Our stand proved very popular and our exhibits got lots of attention. On display was a 1911 Ford Model T Tourer, a 1964 Austin A40 and a very unusual Landini hotbulb tractor from 1950.



However the star attraction was the small Puch VS50L moped which was awarded the coveted 'Motorcycle of the Show' award by the RIAC judges. The club was delighted to receive this great prize, as was the owner of the bike Mr. Tom Maher. Check out the pictures below.
