Club Peugeot UK visit to Kilkenny

Was told a couple of days ago that there was a group of Peugeot enthusiasts coming to Kilkenny this weekend so after a bit of searching on the internet I found some details on the Club Peugeot UK website that they were planning a weekend away in Ireland. Some more "Googleing" turned up some info about their attendance, along with the 406Coupe Club, at the Kilkenny Motor Clubs Show in St James Park on Sunday and a phone call unearthed news that some cars would be on display at the local Peugeot dealership, Morrissey Motors, in Kilkenny tonight. Once dinner was had the camera was put in the car and off we headed to see what would make an appearence.
I don't know how many had/have planned to come over but there was only a handful of visiting cars at the dealership along with a selection from the owners collection and the collection of another Peugeot enthusiast in Kilkenny. Nothing rare or exciting or just plain different like a 405 T16 or a clean DIMMA 205 just some 304's, 404's, 504's. a 205 GTi, 309GTi, 306, 306 Convertibles, 406 Coupe, 505's and a 607, the most unusual car there was a Peugeot 203.
