From Declan Nerney belting out his greatest hits to vintage machinery being put through its paces, the annual Knockbridge vintage rally returns on Sunday 11 September in Knockbridge, just outside Dundalk, Co Louth.

While Nerney takes to the stage at 3pm, the “live” working field promises to be a spectacular sight with a horse-driven threshing mill, steam engines, vintage combine displays, potato planting, horse ploughing and vintage ploughing.

Traditional crafts such as basket weaving, blacksmith, wood turning and tin craft will also be on display, while children will be catered for with inflatables, a soft play area, magic shows, craft workshops, face painting, balloon modelling and more.

Other family favourites will include a dog show, tug of war, vintage fashion show, drumming workshops, and a special exhibition dedicated to Michael Collins.

Gates will open to the public at 12 noon with ample free parking. Entrance fee is €10 for adults and children go free. All proceeds raised on the day will be donated to local charities. For more information, contact 087-2204-261 or check out Knockbridge Vintage Club Facebook page.
