Uitnodiging meeting Ierland 14-19 mei 2023

De voorzitter van de Ierse DKW Club liep al langer rond om een laagdrempelig evenement te organiseren om zo iedereen op een leuke manier kennis te laten maken met Ierland. Bovendien zal het relatief onbekende merk in Ierland indruk maken bij de bevolking. Daarom nodigt Bill Ryan alle geïnteresseerden uit om van 14 tot 19 mei 2023 een bezoek te brengen aan het midden van Ierland. Centrale plaats van dit evenement is Athlone. Inschrijven is niet nodig. Er wordt geen inschrijfgeld geheven. Bil wil wel graag weten wie er komt. Een email naar hem sturen is voldoende. Hieronder lees je de uitnodiging en meer informatie over dit evenement. 

The event will be held in the area around Athlone Co Westmeath Ireland for all DKW Auto Union Audi vehicles over 30 years old .

We have now decided to stay at the Shamrock Lodge hotel for the duration of the event 14=19 of May 2023 .
