The Vintage Car and Honda 50 Run will depart the village at 11am. At 12 noon the official opening of the field will take place and the day’s events will get underway. There will be a wide variety of vintage displays including; cars, tractors, motorbikes, stationary engines, steam engines, threshers, forge and blacksmith demonstrations as well as much more. Sunday is very much a family day out with entertainment for all ages provided.
For the younger generations there will be face painting, novelty games, as well as the unforgettable ‘Magic Puppet Show @ 1pm! For the adults there will be live music and entertainment throughout the day, as well as some great displays of machinery from by-gone-days. Not forgetting, the Dog show which takes place at 3pm.
The Kilflynn Vintage Club greatly appreciates the support that the local community and surrounding areas give us each year. It is because of this support that the club has thrived over the last 26 years. With the help of your support the club has raised funds for numerous different charities and local groups. We hope to see you all in Kilflynn from June 18th -19th for what should be a fantastic weekend of celebrations!

KERRY SENIOR HURLERS
After their heroics in last week’s Joe McDonagh Cup final, the Kerry hurlers found the step up in class against Wexford in this All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Preliminary Quarter-Final a bridge too far as they succumbed to the Slaneysiders before a 2,700 attendance at Austin Stack Park, Tralee on a score line of Wexford 3-30 to Kerry 0-18 on Saturday 11th June. The Crotta club was represented on the panel by Sean Weir (Wing back) (0-01), Jordan Conway (Full Forward) 0-5 (3f, 1 ’65’) James Sheehan and Cillian Trant. This defeat spells the end of their journey for 2022, but they have given great entertainment to their supporters during the last few months and deserve great credit. It’s now on to the County Senior Hurling Championship for these players and we look forward to the campaign. Crotta’s first game in Group 3 is on Friday, 24 June @ 7.30pm against Ballyheigue in Austin Stack’s Park.
