The Erne Vintage Classic Car Show, organised by the Erne Vintage Car Club, is back after a one-year hiatus, taking place at the Necarne Equestrian Centre, Irvinestown over the weekend of 22-24th October.  

Sponsored by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, the event is open to everyone to attend and enjoy the range of classic cars and tractors on show inside the equestrian centre all whilst supporting the work of Air Ambulance Northern Ireland.  

The last Erne Vintage Classic Car show took place in May 2019 at Enniskillen’s Lakeland Forum, raising over £13,000 for their chosen charity Air Ambulance NI, funding the charity for two days. 

Damien McAnespie, Area Fundraising Manager for the charity said, “It will be a great day with a wide range of classic cars and tractors on show and a raffle taking place too. We also hope to bring the charity’s back-up helicopter to the site, dependent on operational requirements on the day. It’s great this event is back, and we are very grateful to the committee, sponsors and whole community for their support.”
