KILFLYNN VINTAGE CLUB
The Kilflynn Vintage Club held their Annual Vintage Weekend on Sunday 18th / 19th June this year. It was a fantastic turnout over the two days and we are very grateful for the support that the community of Kilflynn and afar gives us each year. It is through your support that we are given the opportunity to support local charities and community groups. On Friday night November 11th in Herbert’s Bar, donations were made to Down Syndrome Kerry, St Teresa’s National School Kilflynn. The Rosemary Centre Tralee, and the Defibrillator Group Kilflynn. It gives the committee a great sense of joy to be able to give back to the community and do our bit, all while doing something we enjoy so much. Once again, we would like to thank everyone for your continued support and look forward to 2023!
