History to be brought back to life

Mountbellew Vintage Show returns

THE FORD MODEL T car that ferried Michael Collins to see his fiancée Kitty Kiernan when he was in Longford will be one of the main attractions at the Mountbellew Vintage Show on Sunday July 24.

The show is back following a three-year hiatus, and over 60 acres of ground adjacent to Mountbellew Mart will be given over to the myriad of attractions that will draw lovers of vintage tractors, cars and machinery to the North Galway town.
