The fourth annual Galway Model and Diorama Show will take place next Sunday January 19 in the Salthill Hotel, where enthusiasts and collectors of model cars, tractors, steam engines, and much more will gather to showcase some of the most amazing miniature displays in Ireland.
Now in its fourth year, the Galway Model and Diorama Show has become Ireland’s leading show for this particular hobby, and as well as attracting the top collectors and builders from all over the country it also brings to Galway many speciality traders who sell the most up-to-date models available, with some new models being available in Galway for the first time.
This year the event is supporting The Help Emma Beat It Fund, which is raising funds for 17-year-old Emma Naughton Heavey from Oranmore. Emma is battling a rare cancer called fibrolamellar, and has to travel to the USA every two months to meet specialists and to undergo scans to monitor her situation. There will be a raffle on the day with a number of great prizes, including a weekend away for two, and many great models supplied by some of the businesses attending the event.
The Galway Model and Diorama Show runs in the Salthill Hotel from 10am to 6pm this Sunday January 19, and for more details call Micheal on 086 2527602.
