Hi all, time for the first meet of the year.

This time it's something new, we are heading for the Mizen Head taking in the Wild Atlantic Way.

We'll be meeting in Skibbereen at Hegarty's Esso on Market St. at 12pm for a chat & maybe a quick bite to eat before departing sometime between 12:30 & 1pm. From there we head west via Ballydehob, Schull, Goleen, Crookhaven & Barleycove before reaching the Mizen Head, then we head back towards Bantry again via the coast road & some more nice scenic & driving roads before stopping off at the West Lodge Hotel to refuel.

Here's a Google map of the suggested route including sat nav co-ordinates of the meeting point.

Hopefully we'll see some new faces for this one as well as some of the regulars, as usual all are welcome.

So that's Sunday 7th May at 12pm in Skibbereen at Hegarty's Topaz on Market St. R595 (sat nav co-ordinates 51.54722, -9.26416)

Guilietta

Would love to

I should be introducing myself in another forum, but I have this topic on subscription.

My lovely Guilietta is not a classic (yet) nor particularly rare (yet), but I would love to join you guys!

I'll be heading from Dublin..
May I tag along?

Thanks for the help paddy, but I think I'm one of the very lucky few that they all work (bar the 166 but we won't mention that right now)

Only 2 "YES" RSVPs but a certain Red GT owner is also planning on attending, & I think a Giulietta owner.

anthony.dow & klexas said they were going, are you both still planning on heading south ?

Car washed, fuel tank full & camera battery charged, see you all tomorrow

PS Hegarty's is actually a Topaz not an Esso.
