Welcome to the 53rd Stradbally Steam Rally 2017
The 53rd event in the series will take place onSunday 6th and Monday 7th August 2017(Irish bank holiday - not the same as the UK)'. This is considered by many to be the premier event in the calendar of steam and vintage shows throughout Ireland.
It attracts a wide range of working exhibits and a huge attendance of visitors. It is much enhanced by its very convenient location to the rear of Main Street, adjacent to all of the town facilities. The rallies are approved under the code of conduct of the National Traction Engine Trust.
