THE weather was hit and miss for last Sunday's second annual Three Parishes Vintage Tractor Run which was organised to raise funds to allow work to proceed on the new sports field at Glenmore.

The assembly point was the car park of St Mary's Hall, Cooley, and Des Savage led the way in his Massey Ferguson 165.

Des was one of the lucky ones as his vehicle was fitted with a cab but many of the tractors involved had no such attachment fitted and the drivers had to seek shelter from the heavy showers under the nearest bushes!

The route chosen was directly opposite to that taken the previous year.

After leaving Cooley Hall Des led the entourage back along the main road to the Old Lordship Hall site.

From there it was a right turn up into the mountains, travelling through Slieve na Gloc, turning right to Aghmeen Cross, and then onto the Long Woman's Grave.

It then turned back down through Glenmore with a very welcome stop for refreshments at the Mullaghbuoy Community Centre.

Afterwards it was back via Bush to Cooley Hall.

The Glenmore committee would like to thank all who took part, anyone who helped in any way, and everyone who contributed financially to the Sports Field fund.
