The all-female silage cutting crew were out in force at the weekend.

The ‘Grass Gals’ comprising of forty-two tractor drivers pulled off a blinder at the weekend.

The women were on a mission to create a Guinness World Record of an all-female silage-cutting crew.

Spectators gathered in their thousands to see the unusual sight.

The event was hosted as part of the annual Mount Melleray Community Silage Weekend, with all proceeds raised in aid of Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland.

During the run, the team also met a bride on her way to a wedding in Lismore and we can only imagine what that wedding album is like!

Dawn Cracknell also celebrated her birthday at the event; so to say least there was a hive of ongoing activity.

Participants received commemorative plaques and a rose from event organiser John O’Brien and committee member Mary Coffey presents the Grass Gals with a good bag, donated by Joan Looby Catering.

Team-work

The Grass Gals were joined by the Socket Rockets, a team of all-female mechanics, that facilitated two demonstrations of the re-building a Massey Ferguson 20.

While usually completion hits up the ten minute mark, the women were ahead of the curve on this occasion, completing the challenge in 8 mins and 30 seconds.

Well done ladies!
