Hopes high sun shines while they make hay

Farmers Gus Martin, Michael Neary, Pat Farrelly and Michael O'Connor, pictured by Mark Stedman, were in Temple Bar for a final fling in Dublin yesterday.

They'll all be heading to Trim in Co Meath for the Haymaking Festival, which is taking place on Sunday.

The family-orientated event includes a high-kick competition, a Guinness World Record attempt at sheaf tossing, a roll in the hay competition, an ambassadors' donkey derby, wellington throwing, a donkey show, a traditional thatched cottage village, the Braveheart run and lots more.
