Seventh annual Des Flynn tractor run

The seventh annual Des Flynn tractor run will take place in Castleconnnor on Sunday 18th August in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation and Castleconnor Defibrillator Fund.

Since the first Run in 2013 this event has grown in strength every year with in excess of €23,000 donated to date for the Irish Heart Foundation.

The event was organised to remember a dear and valued member of the farming community in Castleconnor who died unexpectedly in 2013 at the young age of 46 years and to help raise much needed funds.

The monies raised this year for the Castleconnor Defibrillator Fund will be used to buy a new defibrillator for Stokane Community Park.

On the day a monster auction will take place, spot prizes, refreshments, face painting and fun for the kids, GAA on the big screen.

Registration takes place at Castleconnor Community Centre from 11.30am -1.30pm.

€20 per vehicle. All vehicles of all vintages welcome.
