Laois school to host Annual Tractor Run and auction signed flag by 2019 Open Winner Lowry

Clonenagh National School’s Annual Tractor Run will take place in Coolrain on Saturday December, 28.

This fundraising event has proven to be a great day out for all of the family.

The fundraiser starts with a 6km Family Fun Run/Walk around the beautiful countryside near Coolrain village at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains.

This is a great way to work off the excesses of Christmas. All ages are welcome to join the Run/Walk.

Over the last 10 years and this year promises all of the usual excitement with the tractors, the Fun Run/Walk, the all-day long free refreshments and music and the Monster Auction.

This year there is some added anticipation because a very
exciting item will be auctioned at the Monster Auction – an 18th hole flag from The 2019 Open, signed by winner, Shane Lowry.

Shane is a great supporter of school events and even attended the Fun Run/Walk last year.

Registration for the Fun Run/Walk will take place at in
Sheeran’s Pub, Coolrain at 11am.

The cost is €10  for adults and children go free while the run will starts at 11.30am.

Next up will be the Annual Tractor Run which is a sight to behold as the tractors work their way through the village and along the route.

Registration for the Tractor Run takes place at 1pm and the tractors will set off at 2pm.

The now famous tractor stew will be served to the drivers after the run in Sheeran’s pub and all drivers will be given a memento
to remember the day.

The event will finish with the Monster Auction in Sheeran’s Pub at 9pm with many impressive lots to be auctioned on the night, including the Shane Lowry signed flag.

Resident Auctioneer, Joe Shirley, is often the highlight of the night and ensures that all those who come to support will enjoy.
