It was a labour of love for The Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club, which restored a 1989 Land Rover 90, putting it to the test on Rossbeigh Beach, Co Kerry. Weeks of hard work and generosity has given the Land Rover a whole new lease of life, deeming it ready to be raffled off to one lucky winner in November 2018 – all in the name of charity.

The club’s community spirit has been evident, with an array of fund raising charity events organised within the close-knit group throughout the years. Last year’s main project was the remodelling of a Massey Ferguson 135 tractor. This particular assignment generated almost €50,000 for charity, inspiring the club to take on an even bigger challenge this year with the old Land Rover 90 venture. Restoring the jeep comes just in time, as this year marks the 70th anniversary of the Land Rover range.
