It promises to be a great day in Coolrain on December 28 when Clonenagh National School hold their Annual Tractor Run and Monster Auction.
After many successful years of holding the Tractor run, there is also a 6km Family Fun Run in the morning to help blow off the cobwebs from the Christmas exertions.
For the more serious runners, there are prizes for first man, woman and child.
For the walkers you will get to experience the beautiful scenery of the Slieve Bloom Mountains and the delights of the quaint village of Coolrain.
Registration for fun run is at 11am in Sheeran’s Pub, with the start whistle at 11.30am.
The Tractor Run (in its 10th year) is a real sight to behold with over 100 vehicles of all shapes and sizes making the run each year.
The now legendary Tractor Run Stew will again be available to warm participants after the run and lots of soups/tea/coffee/treats etc throughout the afternoon.
All participants who register will receive a lovely momento of the event.
Live Musical Entertainment will be provided in Sheeran’s right throughout the day with at least three different performers taking to the stage.
The Monster Auction takes place at 9pm, with 20 to 30 lots to suit all comers. Our Resident Auctioneer, Joe Shirley, is often the highlight of the night and will ensure all those who come to support will have a great fun.
This annual fundraiser is a very enjoyable event with something for everyone. So come along and join in for some part of the day- It is definitely worth making the trip! Watch out on LaoisToday for photos of the event.
