The South East Ireland Ford 6 Cylinder Club recently held the third annual Ford tractor and Dyno gathering in Co. Kilkenny, raising in excess of €3,100 for Embrace Farm!

On Sunday, December 30th, the annual Ford Tractor and Dyno gathering took place at Cillín Hill in Kilkenny, organised by the South East Ireland Ford 6 Cylinder Club, as first reported by us here.



The third annual installment of the event was held to give Ford enthusiasts the opportunity to see some of their favourite blue machines up close, whilst also raising money for charity. This year’s event was held in aid of Embrace Farm, a farming organisation which offers a support network to farm families to those who have lost a loved one or suffered serious injury in a farming accident.

There was an abundance of attendees and enthusiasts at Cillín Hill on the day, with Fordson, Ford, New Holland and Ford derived tractors all invited along to participate. This year’s event also marked the 30th anniversary of the introduction of the Ford 7810 to Ireland. Organisers were hoping to have as many 7810’s in Kilkenny on the day, something they achieved.



There was also free Dyno testing on the day, courtesy of Murphy’s Motors, for all those in attendance. The team of the South East Ireland Ford Tractor club have revealed in recent days, that their event raised a total of €3,194 for Embrace Farm.

Organisers spoke to thank all of those who showed their support for the event.

“Thanks once again to everyone who brought tractors to Cillin Hill, to everyone who attended and donated and everyone who helped out in any way.” They posted.
