The Irish Jaguar and Daimler Club Ltd. was founded in Cork during 1980 by a group of enthusiasts, who realised that the great interest which many people have for these cars, could best be served through an organised group.

Since then the Club has grown, moving its base to Dublin in 1981 and becoming a Limited Company in 1982. Throughout the 1980s and 90s membership increased steadily, celebrating its 25th anniversary with legendary Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis, and hosting visits by British, American and Australian Jaguar Owners Clubs.

Today the Irish Jaguar and Daimler Club Ltd. is regarded as one of Ireland’s premier car clubs and remains the only Irish club dedicated to the Jaguar, Daimler and SS marques.

At this event we caterer for a diverse audience and manage 3 food courts providing a large variety of food offerings.

The Terenure show is the largest annual car show in Ireland and can attract an attendance of over 15,000 people on a nice sunny day.
