As you are all aware, this year has been dominated by the Covid 19 Pandemic. It has been a strange year with Lockdown, Social Distancing, no meetings or events, all limiting our motoring.

The current level 5 Lockdown prohibits organised indoor and outdoor gatherings. Even if the level 5 restrictions are lifted, we do not know to what level and where we will be at on 1st January.  Motor Sport Ireland and Motorcycling Ireland are insisting that we appoint a Covid 19 officer, only pre-signed entries allowed and Spectators are prohibited.

With these restrictions in mind, the Directors have decided not to hold our annual Charity New Year’s Day run in aid of Marymount Hospice. Marymount still need our support and if you wish you can donate on line, following the instructions below.

·         Link to Page:

·         Enter the amount you wish to donate

·         Select Fund raising event & enter ‘Munster Vintage’ in the Event Name

·         Complete your details and payment details as instructed

In addition to amount collected on NYD, the Club usually matches the total amount collected and even rounds up that figure to a higher amount. So, it is important to mention the Club name when donating.

Our AGM also had to be postponed, and as many members renew their membership at or just before the AGM, there are quite a few membership fees outstanding.

If your membership for 2020 is due, and you wish to remain member of our club, please send your 2020 membership fee (€20-00) to the Membership Secretary at the address below  as soon as possible. If you wish you can add your donation and we will forward it to Marymount Hospice on your behalf.

You can also renew your membership by Paypal. Instructions as follows:

·                  Log on to PayPal

·                  Select ” Send”

·                  Enter in the Send Payments box

·                  Enter amount and select currency “EUR”

·                  Enter your name in the “Add note” box

·                  Select “Sending to a Friend”

·                  Select “Send Payments Now”

Please advise by telephone, letter or email if you do not wish to renew.
Membership for 2021 is also due (€20-00), and can be forwarded to me at the same time.

Meanwhile, stay safe,  hopefully the situation will be much improved next year, and meetings and events can resume.

On behalf of the Munster Vintage Motor Cycle & Car Club,

Yours sincerely,
