Traveling via tractor and trailer between pubs has to be one of the more unique forms of transportation at a stag party.

Wanting to stay local rather than take off to well-known stag party hot spots, this Monaghan stag party for groom-to-be Paul Deery, organised a simple jaunt that turned into an epic day out!

Best man Seamus Deery said the group considered going to a regular stag party hotspot abroad, but thought it would be better to keep things local, as some might not travel as they have family and wouldn't like to be away a whole weekend.

"We were looking at transport and myself and my brother thought 'how about a tractor and trailer, so we borrowed our father's tractor - a Massey Ferguson 65.

"We figured the trailer could hold up to 32 people but the most that was on it was 28."

"We washed it down and put on a few balloons and got a local tractor driver, so we had a designated driver for the day. We met in the morning in John Murray's where we had music, from my brother's band The Fuzzy Burgers, and then we went clay shooting where we had lunch."

It was back into the trailer then for the group and onto Mary Mac's Bar, for a few beverages that was followed by a tug of war game, with Robbie Duffy's team winning with medals and a cup for the winning team!"

The final stop was Coleman's in Laragh where the party enjoyed a BBQ at a marquee in the pub.

"After Coleman's we parked the tractor up for the night and the publican dropped everyone home," Seamus said.
