Here's the details for the trip to the Vee.


We'll meet up in Dungarvan just off the Strandside Roundabout at the carpark beside the playground & Eurospar between 12pm & 12:30pm for a chat & a chance to grab a bite to eat (there's a deli in the Eurospar) before departing for the drive sometime between 12:30 & 1pm


From Dungarvan we'll head through Cappoquin towards Lismore & then up to the Vee where we'll stop for a few pics & a chat at the lay by overlooking Bay Lough, then on to the hairpin for another quick stop before heading on towards Cahir via Clogheen where there's the option to have a meal or head away depending on what people want to do. If anyone wants to make any suggestions of where to eat etc. please do.


Here's the route https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zqc36l7KnZtg.k3pNl4TxcG0s


And here's a few pics from our last trip to the Vee to encourage you all to make the trip http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/meets-andamp-events-images/989610-ao-republic-of-ireland-dungarvan-to-vee-5-june-2016-a.html

Hopefully we'll see some more new faces as well as a few familiar faces for this year's trip to the Vee, as ever all are welcome so come along & don't forget to RSVP :thumbs:


So that's Sunday 18th June, meeting in Dungarvan just off the Strandside Roundabout in the carpark beside the Eurospar/playground at 12pm.

Sorry to hear that, hopefully it's back on the road without too much cost.

**** life - I got the worst cold I can remember in the last 10 years. I've spent the last 24 hours fighting a sore throat, cough, fever and a runny nose - with 28 degrees outside. Pure joy. And of course, when the Vee drive is on.

Unless some miracle happens before tomorrow morning, I'm afraid I won't be able to go anywhere this week end :( :( :(

I won't make it as the car seems to have a bad whine from the gearbox so it's off the road for a period :(

What Paddy said.

Bad timing H3llR4iser, not that there's a good time to be sick, hope you're feeling better soon.

Car washed, tank full & camera battery charged, see ye tomorrow, don't forget the sunscreen & watch out for silage machinery on the roads tomorrow, especially on the narrow back roads ;)

I really enjoyed today, hope the rest of ye did also & thanks for making the trip :thumbs: We had perfect weather for it, if anything it was too hot, the tar was really melting & sticking to the tyres on the way home west of Ballyporeen :eek:

I probably added a few miles to the trip home Paddy taking us into Mitchelstown, I think I missed a sign at the double roundabouts, I saw Cork signposted on the approach but not on at the roundabout :eek: :HEADBANG: And I just finished a Magnum to make up for missing out on the last one earlier ;)

Some pics from today uploaded here http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/meets-andamp-events-images/1083890-ao-republic-of-ireland-dungarvan-to-vee-18-june-2017-a.html

I'm not sure there is an interchange onto the motorway north of Michelstown David. I missed any signage too if there was any.

Top day out. :)

I just looked at a map & I'd say you are right about that.

Hey guys, nice to hear the trip went well!
I'm now back in the land of the living - whatever was that I got over the last 4/5 days, stay away from it, it's horrid. At least I got a couple of days off work, if that's any better.

Glad to hear the trip went well - I'm still bummed about not being able to make it, the Vee one is also the most convenient from here (it's "only" a couple hours drive to Dungarvan). Hopefully, next time will be the charm!
