A WEEKEND for all the family in aid of a good cause is in store at Corrin Mart Fermoy this weekend as the Tractor World Ireland Club rolls into town.
Hopes are high that the event, on Saturday April and Sunday May 1, will raise as much funds as possible for Mary-Mount Hospice Cork as well as mark the memory of the late Fermoy tractor enthusiast William Broderick.
The show gets underway on Saturday at 9am, and a machinery auction will be held at 12 noon. Entries will be accepted on the day and the auction will be in the capable hands of auctioneer Daniel Lehane.
Entry numbers for vintage tractors has been described as 'brisk' and a record turnout is expected. Main tractor dealerships are also confirmed for the show, making it one of the largest vintage and modern tractor shows.
A Vintage Silage demonstration, a model farms display, tractor build teams will be in attendance and lots more for tractor enthusiasts besides round off Saturday's proceedings.
The show Family Day will be officially opened on Sunday 1st May by M.E.P Brian Crowley at 2pm. Leahy's Pet Farm and Mea The Clown will keep kids entertained, while 80 trade stands from all over Ireland & UK covering health, beauty and fashion to tools and appliances will provide something of interest for everyone.
Tractor World Ireland will open both days from 9am - 6pm at Corrin Mart, Fermoy.
