About Us

 

The Military Vehicle Club of Ireland was formed by 13 individuals from both North and South at a meeting in Clarke NCOs Mess in the Curragh Camp in 1996.

Due mainly to the fact that the Defence Forces were not selling off obsolete/surplus vehicles, the Club lay mostly dormant in the South while interested individuals in the North could purchase obsolete/surplus vehicles from the British Army. As a result, a new Club, the Ulster Military Vehicle Club (UMVC) was established in Northern Ireland.

There is very close co-operation and support between the Military Vehicle Club of Ireland and the Ulster Military Vehicle Club with many being members of both Clubs. The Clubs are co affiliated. The original 13 members are still active members of the Military Vehicle Club of Ireland .

We have over the years established strong links with many other military, living history and vintage groups. The Military Vehicle Club of Ireland is an area of the Military Vehicle Trust and is affiliated to the Irish Vintage Society.

We have since 2004, received funding from Kildare County Council, Co Operation Ireland and Bord Failte.

The Military Vehicle Club of Ireland operates under a Constitution and Code of Conduct and an AGM is held every year in December or January. Our main annual show takes place at the Curragh Racecourse in May every year.
