The Dublin to Mayo tractor run is set to take place this coming Good Friday and Saturday, March 30th – 31st.
The event has been organized by a group of local do-gooders and tractor fanatics and all money raised will go to not one, but two charities. The charities in question are Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin and Castlebar Special Care Unit.
The two-day event will commence at Phoenix Park in Dublin on Good Friday at approximately 9am, with 18 tractors set to make the journey. They will travel via Lucan, Leixlip, Maynooth, Kilcock, Enfield, Mother Hubbard’s, Clonard, Kinnegad, Miltownpass, Mullingar, Rathowen, Edgeworthstown and Longford. They will stay overnight at Feerick’s in Rathowen on Good Friday night
The second day of the event will recommence in Longford, taking in Lanesboro, Roscommon, Ballymoe, Castlerea, Ballinlough, Ballyhaunis, Claremorris, Knock, Kiltimagh, Bohola, before making it home to Castlebar. The event will be celebrated at approx. 8pm in the Breaffy House Hotel.
The event organizers are raffling off a fully-restored Massey Ferguson 35 X at the event, while ThatsFarming will be offering one lucky follower the chance to drive the ultimate machine for the day!
In Association with New Holland, we are offering anybody who enters our raffle a chance to drive a brand new, New Holland T7 210 Blue Power the whole way from Dublin to Mayo.
