Hi all,
So this day seemed to be the most popular of the two.
Anyway as most of you know, the Military road to Glendalough is one of the nicest in the country and what better way to celebrate the extra hour than taking a spin up.

Plan is to meet in St Enda's car park in Rathfarnham around 15:30 and leave at 16:00. It should take around an hour to get to glendalough.
There are some nice photo ops along the way so make sure those alfas are cleaned well....the non alfas that might attend, well make sure they're stunning as well, they'll need to be with all these Italian cars around:lol:

From Glendalough, take the R755 into Roundwood and from from there head up the sally gap and back down the military Road.

If anyone has any other suggestions feel free to make them :thumbs:

Don't forget to RSVP if you are planning on attending.

Collected, second day of driving today :)
Works great - so now the 'insides' are pretty much done - next stop bodywork :)
She'll be still looking like car straight from Italy on this meet, but hopefully by the end of the year she'll be better than new!

Great to hear Bernard, is the bodywork or bad, or is it something a detailer could take out?

Great stuff Bernard!:thumbs:

Great to hear someone else has caught the disease.


I was worried that the weather would be bad tomorrow last night and this afternoon when it was bucketing down but met eireanns rainfall radar is predicting it to be dry and there doesn't seem to be anything moving in either except for cold weather.
