Tractors from far and wide gather for annual run
THERE was a great turnout at the Bigstone Tractor Run last Sunday with people coming from all over West Wicklow, Carlow and Kildare to take part.
A diverse array of vintage tractors and cars, lorries and motorbikes gathered at Bigstone Community Hall on a mild, cloudy day. There was a festive atmosphere with country music booming out as more and more vehicles came to register before the 2 p.m. start.
Parents, teenagers, children and vintage enthusiasts were all in evidence as the venue became a meeting point for neighbours, family and friends to catch up and enjoy the fun atmosphere.
This event has grown over the past three years and is now an important fundraiser for the Bigstone Community Hall which is used by many community groups in the area.
Well done to Kevin Burke, Donal Kavanagh and Niall Kane who organised this years’ event with many others in the community involved in the supervision, registration and supply of refreshments on the day.
