Thousands flocked to Wexford quayfront over the Bank Holiday weekend to check out all the latest car models available in Ireland.

The Wexford Motor Show has been a major attraction over the last number of years and the glorious weather brought large crowds to the area.

There was something for everyone over the two day event regardless of whether you were looking for new 182 model or interested in the cars of yesteryear.

The show provided a perfect opportunity for those in the market to browse the various brands available and view the competing models side-by-side rather than having to travel from showroom to showroom.

This year's show which drew crowds of almost 20,000 had the biggest ever motor business participation in the country with 21 franchise dealers and 27 brands represented.

There was also plenty of fun attractions for children with music, clowns, Disney characters, face painting, a climbing wall and kids area.

The charities supported were the RNLI, Down Syndrome Ireland and the Special Olympics. The show was organised by the local motor retailers and the Society of the Irish Motor Industry with support from Wexford local authorities, the Gardaí and the RSA.
