The society was formed in 2002 and evolved from the very successful annual Moville Vintage Car Rally. This event attracts vintage transport enthusiasts from near far and begins with a period of show and tell in Moville Square. This is followed by the drive by all entrants round Greencastle and Stroove providing a truly spectacular sight for all.
Local interest in all things agricultural led to the annual Inishowen Vintage Agricultural Show in 2002 in Carrick Farm, just on the edge of Moville. This small event was such a hit with locals and visitors alike, that it has grown every year to be the biggest local community event of the year. Content includes a vast array of vintage tractors, machinery, trucks & cars, including displays and demonstrations of many of our traditional crafts and skills.
Inishowen Vintage Show is held every year on the 2nd Sunday of June, one of the biggest vintage shows in the North West. Moville Co. DonegalRead more
