A new book entitled Historic Motoring in Ireland, which recalls Ireland's motoring history from the earliest days, is being published to commemorate 50 years of the Irish Veteran & Vintage Car Club (IVVCC).

The 170-page hardback production, compiled and edited by IVVCC member Anselm Aherne, contains a wealth of articles, information and historical recollections and is richly illustrated with photographs, many of which were never previously published.

Published with sponsorship by Motor Distributors Limited, the book has a cover price of €25 and will be available later this month through the club website, www.ivvcc.ie.

Founded in 1963, the IVVCC has some 650 members, comprising veteran, vintage and classic car enthusiasts, dedicated to the preservation of Ireland's motoring heritage.
