Three branches of the Irish Natura and Hill Farmer Association (INHFA), based in in the Erris region, Co. Mayo have come together and will be hosting a tractor run this Sunday (May 26th).
The event is to help the local Order of Malta secure funds for a new ambulance.
Speaking of the event, one of the organisers, Richard King said: “The local farmers, contractors and vintage enthusiasts will all come out and we can all put on a bit of a show”.
What to expect
The tractor run will be followed by a display and there will be a D.J. playing music for everyone’s entertainment. There will also be a raffle held on the day.
There was a turnout of over fifty-five participants last year, with a higher attendance expected this year.
There will be classic tractors from throughout the generations on display including a Fendt 936 ‘Black Beauty’ and a Massy Fergusson Harris Pony to name just two.
Tom Walsh will return with his drone to film the action from the sky; follow - thatsfarming - on Snapchat for coverage from the event.
Registration will commence at 12 noon on the morning of the run. The entry fee is €25. Participants will assemble at the Inver Community Centre, Barnatra, and will arrive at the Gateway leisure Belmullet at 3:30.
For those who would like to take part but would like a shorter run, there is a halfway point at St. Brendan's school in Belmullet where there will be an organiser there to register any tractor who would like to join from that point.
