A must-see event, the Carole Nash Historic Festival brings together classic and vintage motorcycle and car clubs and their iconic vehicles. Whether you are a classic car or bike owner, collector, enthusiast, club member, or just someone with a passion for classic vehicles, we have something for everyone this summer! 

The Martin Birrane Museum

We’ll be opening our Martin Birrane Museum, showcasing our impressive collection of iconic motor racing cars, including Porsche, Jordan, Jaguar, Benetton, Ford, and many more legendary brands. The collection is considered one of the hidden gems of Irish motor racing, containing some iconic and rare equipment from Saloon and Sportscar racing and Formula One as well.

Among the cars in this collection are the LOLA T90 raced by Sir Jackie Stewart in the 1966 IndyCar 500, the LOLA B94 raced by Nigel Mansell, and Eddie Irvine’s Jordan 194 F1.

The collection represents the results of Martin Birrane’s lifetime collecting of beautiful, historic racing cars. There is free entry to the Martin Birrane Collection at Mondello Park for all attendees. Be sure to drop in!
