The death has occurred of former club member Hector Newenham

Mr Newenham was active from the early days of the club. He finished first in the small saloon class in the first Circuit of Munster in 1949. Due to his connection with Ford dealer Limerick Motor Works he often competed in Zephyr and Anglias although did occasional use MGs and Austins. For example he won the large saloon class in the 1952 Circuit of Munster with a Zephyr. This article from a 2007 Limerick Leader about events in 1953 shows Mr Newenham using a rather different form of transport.

Mr Newenham also competed in the 1952 Monte Carlo rally as co driver with P E D Kennedy in a Ford starting from Glasgow
