Welcome To The Kells Transport Museum Website

Ireland's Operating Bus Museum powered by
Bedford, Detroit Diesel, Ford, Gardner, Leyland, Mercedes and Volvo.


Mogeely Rally was held July 11, 2004 under brilliant sunny skies and was an outstanding success, if for no other reason than the Museum's Nefkins 48 (Servisair 1179) took a prize.

The following are some photographs taken at the rally to give you a flavour.
