VICARSTOWN went back in time as a colourful convoy of vintage and classic cars and motorbikes rolled through the village.

The Tommy Ryan Memorial Run yet again lived up to high expectations, as a wonderful variety of meticulously maintained vehicles chugged their way through the scenic riverside area.

There was a fantastic turnout as crowds gathered on the bridge and outside the Vicarstown Inn to support the ninth annual run, which is the main fundraiser for voluntary group Laois Riding for the Disabled.

Pictured at the Tommy Ryan Memorial Vintage Run were Jonathan Prior, Pat Culleton and John Doonan

Co-organisers Anne and Tom Burke were delighted with the success of the event, as they thanked the large team of volunteers and participants for their incredible support. Every euro collected goes to the riding group, which receives no public funding and does invaluable work for people who are either physically or mentally challenged.

Memorial pins were presented to all drivers who took part in the road run, with trophies for the winning car and motorbike. As a result of the generously supported event, a very welcome cheque will be presented to Laois Riding for the Disabled at a celebration in the Vicarstown Inn in coming weeks.
