Bargy Vintage Club held their annual fundraising barbecue in Coopers Inn in Killinick and raised €2,500 for Ballycogley Hall development and St. Fintan's GAA Club.

The club which was established 10 years ago for vintage tractor, machinery and car enthusiasts has raised a total of over €150,000 for charity with beneficiaries including Mayglass Church, Wexford MarineWatch, Ozanam House, Wexford Women's Refuge and Tagoat Day Care Centre.

Members are currently gearing up for the annual Vintage Run on September 29 over a route to be confirmed, finishing up with celebrations in Ballycogley.

All proceeds from this event will go towards the upkeep of Ballymore parish church, according to current club chairman Willie Day.
