Since 2002 we have been sending volunteers to Ethiopia with the Vincentian Lay Missionaries. In our All Ireland Vintage Motor Cycle Gathering we are planning to meet with these volunteers in Carlow, Enniscorthy, Cork, Ennis, Galway, Sligo and in various parts of Donegal.
It will be our gathering reunion and each area will organize a welcoming function for the ten vintage motor cyclists who will tour Ireland from Tuesday, August 13th to Monday, August 19th ending with a special gathering in Gweedore, Co.Donegal. Radio Na Gaeltachta will conduct a daily interview on the progress of the tour. In each area the local motor cyclists will come to meet the touring group and escort them into the various towns.
We have bikers from the U.K joining the main body of the tour and bikers from Germany will join us at certain stages of the journey. The official departure is from the Church Restaurant , Mary’s Street Dublin 1 on Tuesday, August 13th at 11.00 a.m.
