Thomastown Classic Steam and Vintage Club will hold the Dick Forristal Memorial Run on Easter Sunday.

Dick was one of the original founders of the club and brought his steam engine up and down the country to many events, raising a lot of money for various charities. Dick’s Family have nominated two worthy charities as beneficiaries from the run, The Cois Nore Cancer Support Centre and Carlow Kilkenny Home Care Team. All tractors and trucks new and old along with vintage and classic cars in the parish and surrounding parishes are being encouraged to support this year’s event in honour of Dick.
