Chance to Win an MG at This Years Tipperary Vintage Rally

Tipperary Vintage Rally is holding what must be the raffle of the year with the prize being a fully roadworthy MG. The car is a 1977, 1,800 cc MG BGT and is fully roadworthy although it would benefit from a little TLC. Tickets are €10 each and may be purchased from Jack Leonard on 086 2716931. This is a tremendous opportunity to get your hands on one of the most iconic Brit sports car classics and with only 500 tickets being issued the chances of winning are very good indeed.  As with all proceeds from the rally the money raised will go to charity. The raffle will be drawn at 3:30 pm on the day of the rally.

Other preperations for this years Tipperary Vintage Rally to be held this Easter Sunday, 24th April, are now well under way with the organisors intent on providing a great day out for the whole family whilst raising money for good causes in the area. This year the rally has been opened up to custom cars, trucks and bikes to broaden its appeal and attract yet more visitors to Limerick Junction where once again it is being held. Another new feature will  be will be an auction of vintage/classic vehicles and equipment which it is hoped will become an annual event alongside the Trip Through Tipp charity bike ride held the evening before which is proving a very popular draw.

Besides the tractors, cars and trucks there will be tracion engines in steam, a threshing machine in work and a one day rebuild of a Mazda MX 5 which was stolen from its owner, Seamus O’Grady of Doon, before being wrecked by joyriders in Limerick with the whole sorry episode being posted on Youtube. The challenge is to completely restore it (other than final respray) and put it back on the road within the day of the rally. Semus is confident that it can be done but it won’t be easy so they’ll apprecaite all the support they can get.

Firm favourites such as the dog show, photo competition, balloon race, face painting, bouncy castles and so on will again be there and to cap it all the Newtown Country band are going to come along and provide live music and entertainment for the day. Altogether the orgainsors are putting on a fantastic weekend for family and enthusiast alike and welcome everyone along to what is going to be a great Rally. Details of everything that is happening along with entry forms and contact numbers may be found on the Rally website at
