Went to Ireland last Aug.
While we were there we visited the area where Henry Ford parents were from. It was 20 miles from where my ancestors were from and they came to the USA about the same time. Along the highway they had this Life size Stainless steel model T in honor of the Ford connection to Ireland. The Ford family has visited the site on several occasions.
I like the fact that it hasn't been vandalized. Is it in a park open to the public at all times?
Yes, It's right next to the road on the corner of two streets. Next to it is the Ford Bar which was closed when I was there recently. It was heavy rain the day I went to visit but still looked really nice like the picture.
And DeLorean thought he was first in S.S. cars!!
Sure don't have to worry about flats but I bet the ride is pretty hard.
What county, town in Ireland?
It's in Ballinascarty, County Cork, Ireland.
Couldn't believe how clean it was in Southern Ireland. Didn't see trash laying about like parts of USA. We drove for miles and couldn't seem to locate a barn. While we made a pit stop I asked a man if they had barns, and he replied that they build out of site from the motorways to keep a clean look.
I once owned a Irish Fordson tractor.
My wife has a daughter that lives there in a historic thatched roof cottage in Ardmore.
Beautiful country but Narrow roads and the people drive on the Wrong side of the road or was that ME... Quite an experience and a fun time.
My Carrothers roots have some Orange color to them so we have fun fighting between us LOL
Silly question perhaps Clay. Did you find any relations?
Ireland is way up on my bucket list but I have no relatives on a namesake peninsula nor the namesake distillery up in County Louth.
Some time ago, they kicked my relations the he!! out. We're the nicest people, trust me... ;-)
VERY interesting display and thank you.
Neat, thank you for sharing. Will have to look for it when we make a trip that way sometime.
