Monaghan Veteran and Vintage Club held its Annual Rally in Clontibret on Sunday July 7th. The sun shone with a clear blue sky and the crowds came in droves to enjoy the Rally Day. This seemed to me to be the biggest and best show ever. The spectators were there in their hundreds and the numbers of everything was an increase on previous years. Vintage Cars, Lorries, Motorbikes and Tractors were running out of parking space The Hay-making area was all action and with various methods of saving the hay and different Threshing Machines in action threshing the corn there was plenty to see. There were exhibitions of all descriptions scattered throughout the massive field and a huge number of Traders Stands were there selling their wares. The giant steam engines and indeed the small steam engines chugged their way about the field as people stood to gaze at their mighy power. There was music and dancing and we had recitals by Clontibret O’Neill Pipe Band joined with a Pipe Band from New York. There was food for the hungry and Ice Cream vans for the over-heated and plenty of vintage to be seen at the neighbouring club displays. There were farm animals and animals not native to Ireland and Dog Shows and displays of Dog Control. I could go on and on but suffice it to say that every aspect of life was covered. Wonderful day out and great credit to the Vintage Club for the work they did and not just on the day but in preparation. Well done all. Murphy Video Services recorded a Vdeo for the Club and this will be on sale later in the year and should be worth seeing and having for the history.
