Restored Jaunting Car

Jaunting Cars, and there were different styles, were a very popular mode of transport, during the 19th century and early 20th century Ireland. Perhaps, the most famous Irish Jaunting Car is one which featured in the Maureen O’Hara & John Wayne 1952 film The Quiet Man, which was filmed in Co. Mayo.  The one in this video, is not just a fine example of an Irish Jaunting Car but a wonderful example of a meticulous restoration project, one which was carried out by the Men’s Group.
