It was another brilliant Easter Sunday at the Carlow Classic Motorcycle Show 2018.

Bikers from across the country converged on Carlow to relax in the company of fellow bike nuts and share stories and memories about some of the best-known bikes of the last century.

The timeless classics on display brought history to life and made for a memorable weekend for anyone lucky enough to have made it to CBS School this year.

And with a jam-packed autojumble keeping visitors busy throughout the day, there was certainly no shortage of things to take in at what is now one of Ireland’s leading shows.


Brian bags a beauty

The weekend was even more special for Longford’s Brian McCormack – he scooped the first prize in the headline-grabbing prize draw, riding away with a dazzling BMW R1100RT and plenty of envious glances!

Congratulations also go to Lisa McCandless (motorcycle jacket) and Keith Warren (€100) for collecting the second and third prizes.

And there was good news for a string of other visitors, whose bikes triumphed in the show’s overall awards.

Liam Kenny (Flat Tank section), Peter Doyle (Pre-War), John Caulfield (Post-War), Joe Neeson (Post 1960), Con Rogers (Continental), and Maurice Cleary (Japanese) were among those celebrating their victories. And Maurice Cleary had even more reason to cheer after landing the prestigious ‘Best in Show’ gong for his immaculate Suzuki GT 125.


Catching up with old friends

It was great to see so many Carole Nash customers down at CBS School, wandering among some of the beautiful bikes on display.

We managed to dish out plenty of goodie bags and had hundreds of chinwags with our fellow bike lovers.

In fact, we had such a fantastic time at the Carlow Classic Motorcycle Show 2018 that we’re already counting down the days to next year’s event!
