Vintage Car & Bike Show plays host to a terrific array of vehicles. The colours, shapes, sizes and ages of all the vintage, veteran and classic cars and bikes is a kaleidoscope of colour with shining bodywork, glistening wing mirrors, gleaming fenders and lovingly cared for upholstery. The show is run as a strict classic car show, no steam engines or tractors in sight which usually is the norm at these events. 2012 will see all of this and more, with overseas clubs being represented also.

Youghal man John McGrath who lived in the Clock Gate from 1939 to 1959 speaks about his memories of those day and other stories. The tower built in 1777 was part of the towns fortifications. It served the town as a gaol and a public gallows until 1837. It then became a family home until 1959 when the last family left, which was the McGrath family.
Having grown up in the Clock Gate, John left for Britain during the 1950’s as did many of his contemporaries. There he observed the post-war housing improvements in Britain, thus, on his return he urged his parents to seek more comfortable and conventional accommodation. They reluctantly left the clock gate in 1959. The McGrath home offers a glimpse into the social, political, and economic changes experienced during the twentieth century.
The Clock Gate is undergoing extensive renovations and near completion of this phase of the refurbishment & development works.
