Layout 1We would like to wish the best of luck to all the gang participating in the 8th Annual Eireball Run, which starts from Saturday 10th August and runs up until Sunday 18th August.

Louisa, our accounts manager, is the organiser of this vintage charity run, which has been taking place since 2006

The Eireball Run is a group of vintage VW enthusiasts driving around Ireland raising money for various charities.  2013 is the 8th Eireball Run and to date they raised well over €60,000 for various charities, including Share a Dream Foundation, Haven, Mercy Hospital Foundation, Bridges Across Borders, Focus Ireland. Last years charities were Samaritans & MS Ireland, who both received cheques for €3650 each.

Eireball visits Fr. Ted’s Parochial House

The photo opposite shows the convoy at Fr. Ted’s House in the Burren, Co Clare. The Eireballers visit so many famous spots as they circumnavigate the country but this was one of the great fun stop-offs for the Eireball crew.   Mrs. Doyle had a very busy day preparing all the teas and camper-shaped sandwiches.

Watch the video!

This year The Eireball run is raising funds for ISPCC and The Irish Cancer Society. Keep an eye out for the Eireball Run as they make their way around Ireland, and be sure to give the colourful convoy a wave if they pass you.
