Colm Seoighe will dress as Crystal - his alter ego - for the Dublin2Mayo 2019 run if more than €100,000 is raised before the event commences.
“Crystal came about as part of a competition in Kilkelly to find the worst drag queen in Connacht.” Organised explained.
Seoighe was nominated as the volunteer representing Extreme Tractor Runs.
“Through a lot of persuasion, a little Dutch courage and the promise of fame and fortune, he finally agreed to take part.”
“He won the title outright; since that night in 2018, we have refused to let him forget, with cardboard cut-outs, constant reminders and jokes.”
“We're super excited to get Colm Seoighe driving from Dublin2Mayo in a dress; help us make sure Colm is scarlet-faced leaving Dublin by donating.”
The 2019 run – which is in excess of 280kms - will feature a number of tractors that will make their way through the streets of Dublin City before arriving in Mayo – their final destination.
The event is being held in aid of The National Rehabilitation Hospital and Pediatric Special Care Units in Midland Regional Hospital, Mullingar and Mayo University Hospital, Castlebar.
As part of their fundraising efforts, organisers are also selling raffle tickets, with the top prize being the Massey Ferguson 135 tractor which is featured in the video– tickets cost €10 each or a book of 3 can be purchased for €20.
The draw will take place on Easter Sunday (April 21st) - see more here.
