For the past 10 years, the Irish Vintage Society (IVS) and the Irish Vintage Engine and Tractor Association (IVETA) have shared a 2ac site at the annual event. This year was no different and attendees were treated to a large and varied selection of equipment from various decades on display and in operation.
The vintage stand provided a great mix between machinery and traditional crafts from many years ago. Spectators were treated to a frenzy of traditional craft-making taking place including bread-making, butter-making, weaving, sock-making and wool and willow weaving. This year the stand witnessed a number of dwellings constructed on site, including an old bog cottage, a working man’s kitchen and a shepherd’s sleeping hut, all of which were constructed by vintage members. Scroll through the gallery above to see some of the standout machines on display.
