New Arrivals at Tara’s Palace Museum of Childhood

We have received a donation of 3 pedal cars from the Toys of Yesterday Collectors Association. The cars were made by Hughie McGrath (now deceased) in his workshop in Monkstown. The pedal cars are made from recycled materials. A mechanic and welder by trade, Hughie built his first pedal car at the age of twelve. Hughie’s wife Mary deserves lots of credit as well as she spent many an hour polishing the brass! The Rolls Royce, Bugatti and Hispano Suiza pedal cars are on display now at Tara’s Palace Museum of Childhood!
