Cars and Coffee Killarney is back after an extended break and the first show of the year will take place on July 19 at the KC Print factory in Lissivigeen.

Founded last August, by the Killarney Advertiser’s Cormac Casey and his motoring friends, the laid back monthly car show proved a hit with car lovers in the county and attracted an eclectic mix of classic, racing and modern cars over the course of the four events that ran last year.

Cars and Coffee was due to return in February for the 2020 season but Storm Denis put an end to it and COVID-19 restrictions intervened in March meaning none of the planned monthly shows took place at all this season.

With life slowly returning to normal the first show has now been scheduled for July 19 and will continue monthly until further notice. Last year it ran from July to November on the third Sunday of the month.

Like all events, the running of Cars and Coffee depends on the current restrictions that may be in place at the time of the show, and car owners are asked to pre-register their attendance via killarneycarsandcoffee@gmail.com.

Strict social distancing rules will apply for the event and spectator numbers will be limited and controlled. The event will get underway at 10am.
