The 2022 Detroit Auto Show has moved from winter to summer to make North America's…
All roads lead to Clogh this weekend as the quaint village of North Kilkenny prepares to hold its annual vintage car show.
Clogh Vintage Club President Tom Murphy has been working behind the scenes to ensure this year’s show will be a resounding success.
“We’re really looking forward to the show this year,” he said.
“It’s always a great day out for the whole family and a must for vintage lovers.”
Among the many vehicles that will be on display at the show is John Brennan’s Ford 2000 – a vehicle with a storied past that was recently discovered.
Brennan, who is both a local councilor and a PRO at the Clogh Vintage Club, bought the tractor about 20 years ago.

“After a while I found out the tractor wasn’t registered so I left and had it registered as vintage,” he said.
“When the tax book came back, the two names on the tax book were the Governor of Portlaoise Prison and the GAA, Croke Park, Dublin.”
John’s tractor will be one of many fascinating vintage engines on display at the show, which takes place this Sunday, September 4.
Registration will open from 11 a.m. at the Chatsworth Community Ground. All are welcome.
