Salute! 2012 - The Tanks Are Back!

Postby kdouglas on Tue Jun 19, 2012 2:38 pm

NEWS:Keep out of the rain at Salute! Indoor

Since the typical Irish summer has been a little worse than usual this year, we now have a large section of Salute! indoors. Wind, Rain or Snow (it's possible :) ), the show will go on.
But don't worry, the vehicle driving arena and battle re-enactments will still be there.


Hi All,

Just a quick post to let you know that Salute! this year will be on 25th & 26th August in The National Show Centre, Swords.

Below is the blurb from our website about the show;

The Tanks Are Back!

This year sees Salute! return to it's traditional location at The National Show Centre in Swords.
See living history and military vehicle displays and now that we're back in Swords, we'll have our vehicle driving displays, including the 63 Ton Chieftain tank and the 16 Ton 432 and 434 APCs.

There's only one place in Ireland you'll see these vehicles show off what they can really do, at Salute!

Thanks
Keith

We're glad to join, too.
But where the heck is The Swords National Show Centre? Google search wasn't too successful...

Hi Cathal,

It's just off the swords bypass, between the airport and airside. There's a map on our Facebook event page at www.salute.ie/facebook

I'm in my phone at the moment, so can't do better than that but can post a direct link to a google map later if necessary. It should be easy to spot on the weekend of the show, there will be a Chieftain tank visible from the road :)

Hi All,

Forgot to post previously, here are the Ticket prices for this year's show;

Adult: €8

Child: €5

Family: €20 (2 Adults, 2 Children)

Also, with the bad weather this year, we have reserved an option on moving some of the show indoors, we still intend to go ahead with an outdoor show if the weather is favourable, but just so you know, the show will go ahead no matter what!
