Organised by the Finn Valley Vintage Club, the rally has raised tens of thousands of euro for local charities over the last 16 years.According to the organisers, the idea of the event is to promote agricultural, vintage and other items of heritage and also provide a venue suitable for the enthusiast to show items of yesteryear.Club Chairman, Jason Patton, said they also wanted to allow the public the opportunity to view such rare treasures.He said they are expecting another bumper crowd this year again at the Cross. “We have been putting a lot of hard work and time in to organising this event over the past year.“This is a very worthy event and more than €10,000 was raised last year alone with all the money going to local charities,” Mr Patton said.Gates open at 12 noon and admission will cost just seven euro for adults and three euro for teenagers. Younger children will be admitted free of charge.
