We are Carlow Vintage and Classic Motor Club

 Welcome to Carlow Vintage and Classic Motor Club. The club was formed in 2007 with only 40 people involved in it at the start which quickly grew after a few meetings and word spread about the club and out of nowhere people with their cars crawled out of the woodwork or metalwork would be the right term.



There was always a lot of interest in Classic and Vintage cars in the Carlow area and the surrounding Counties.

To date we have 148 members and still growing strong from Counties Carlow, Laois,  Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow and Kildare.

We hold our meetings on the last Tuesday of every month at 8.30pm in the Lord Bagnel Hotel in Leighlinbridge.

All members are sent a text message to be reminded of time and place of meetings or upcoming events.


New members are always welcome.

So do you have a classic or vintage car, motor bike or tractor?

Or do you just have an interest in the vintage scene?

Maybe you’re looking to buy something and not sure where to start?

Then join us and we’ll help you to get on the road.
