Sorry to see such a rare Irish Mini leave our shores.

I remember seeing a blue S in a garage in Trim many moons ago, it had damage to the drivers wing where the brakes had failed and the car had hit a wall at low speed, diaphragm was gone in the servo I think.

There was a guy in the Club years ago who had a blue 1071 S that he restored. I think he lived in Ballinteer. There can't have been too many blue ones around.
