About The VCI
The Vespa Club of Ireland is a national network of genuine Vespa enthusiasts and although it was re-established in 2006, we can trace our roots back to the original scooter boom of the 1950’s when the club was originally formed.
As a member of the Vespa World Club, which is a global hub for all national Vespa Clubs, our main goal is to promote the Vespa lifestyle and heritage in Ireland.
Not only do we help connect and support enthusiasts at home but we also assist our friends visiting from overseas, by becoming part of the extended Vespa “family” we also get to enjoy the same level of congeniality and hospitality from our fellow Vespisti when travelling abroad.
An early gathering at the Metropole Cinema on O’Connell Street in Dublin circa 1957 for the premier of Loser Takes All starring Glynis Johns & Rossano Brazzi. The cinema stood on the site occupied today by Penneys department store.
We’re also a very useful resource when it comes to either preserving and restoring older vehicles or just keeping newer ones on the road, members get to tap into the collective knowledge and expertise built up by their fellow enthusiasts over decades.
Once you take out membership you’ll also get access to the VCI member’s Facebook group and forum.
You can enrich the group with your Vespa stories, share ideas, ask questions, arrange meet ups, advertise items wanted or for sale, post photos or just chat with colleagues.
All with a reasonable degree of privacy!
