50 years of Steam Rally!

Last year I was lucky enough to be a visitor at the Steam Rally in Stradbally and I’ve taken a few photos you can see here.

This year I went again, and despite the changing weather on Sunday, the 3rd of August, I had a great time there.

It was a very important event, especially because it was the 50th Anniversary and people from all over Ireland came to see all the steam engines and vintage cars.

Plus, there were a lot of stalls and activities for a family to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon.

Enough with the talking; have a look at some of the following photos that might convince you to visit the rally next year!

And, of course, what matters in the end of the day? A pint of Guinness and a good nap! 😉
