Fucking KFC will be losing our second Tuesday of the month trade very soon. If there was any where else open at that time. We need to tag their windows with more eircooled stickers, show em we mean business.

I think we just need to come with our own mugs.
As weather gets nicer it might be worth having a small convoy through town and grab coffee elsewhere.

good idea on the convoy but where's open on a Tuesday night? KFC and McDonalds really and McDonalds has some neighbours that I wouldn't like to leave my van near for any length of time.
we went to the M9 motorway services at Paulstown a couple of times a while back and it was a good spot but it's further again for the Waterford and crew to travel. Also, it's not just coffee, some of our attendees get their dinner that day in KFC. So any alternative venue would have to serve food too I think.

I'd be open to a change if we need it. I have no allegiance to KFC and coffee is coffee to me, I don't care where I get it. It would be nice to incorporate a short spin in the summer months, no more than half an hour though I think. But we need to find a venue with parking space available, food available, easy to get to, no further afield than a couple of miles of where we meet at the moment. But all I can think of at the moment are KFC, McDonalds and Paulstown Services. Anyone else got any ideas?

I’m actually happy with KFC as it’s a handy venue for most to get to, guaranteed parking right outside where we can keep an eye on the car and as Trev said there’s not much else open for coffee AND food on a Tuesday night. I’ll pack a few more mugs and coffee in the van in case they’re ever out of coffee AGAIN!

Pics from the last few months as i kept forgetting to upload them.
We're getting 10-15 people at these each month with regulars still driving from areas such as Waterford, Clonmel, Kildare, Carlow, Portlaoise etc.
It doesn't matter what you arrive in.
Just throw up a post if you fancy joining us or introduce yourself if you pop into KFC on the night. We (most of us) don't bite!

We're usually getting 10-15 people each month. Would be nice to see some new faces as I'm sick of the old crew :lol2:

I snuck into Kilkenny under the radar for the last meeting on Tuesday and I have to say it was brilliant craic.
Non stop giggles with a sprinkling of VW talk and then the swap meet started outside!
if you’re ever in the area when this is on, you should make time to get to it. A great bunch of lads who are all about making owning a VW fun!
oh, and I got a cool Kilkenny meet sticker for my Beetle too (y)
