Welcome to our Club!

Introducing The Carlow College Show 13th & 14th August!


Carlow Vintage and Classic Motor Club

changes venues for both May and August Shows!

The Carlow Vintage and Classic Motor Club are looking forward to a very busy show season this year and are delighted to announce that they have secured 2 new venues for their ever popular shows.  The club will be holding a Show Season Launch at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel on Sunday 3rd April next on the grounds of the Woodford Dolmen Hotel where members will gather with all cars on show on the hotel grounds and will be meeting with the public to promote their Summer shows.


The Club’s first show of the season in May, previously hosted at Duckett’s grove will now take place on the grounds of Carlow Rugby Club located at Oak Park on the edge of Carlow Town on the 8th May. 


Club Chairman PJ Lawlor, says “the club is delighted with our new May venue which holds many advantages to include easy access from all directions.  It is with sadness that we leave the fantastic facilities and location of Duckett’s Grove but we must make way for the great initiatives that the Council are making with biodiversity including meadows for the bees.”  PJ especially thanks the Community section of the Council including Emer Connors and Michael Brennan for their help over the years.

The Carlow Vintage and Classic Motor Club was formed in 2007 with only 40 people involved in the beginning. However, there had always been a healthy classic and vintage vehicle scene in the south east of Ireland and the club quickly grew after a few meetings and rallies. 

To date we have over two hundred members from counties Carlow, Laois, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Dublin and Kildare.

We hold our meetings on the first Tuesday of every month at 8.30pm at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel on the Kilkenny Road Carlow and new members are always welcome. All members are reminded of upcoming events and meetings through our Facebook page, text message and our website here. 

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.
