Tractor enthusiasts from across the country rolled into Rathpierce recently to learn about the wealth of history behind the Massey Ferguson tractor.
Over 100 people came along hear Massey Ferguson experts from England share all there is to know about Massey Fergusons, from their humble beginnings right up to the present day. According to David Nolan of the Friends of Ferguson Southeast Branch, the talk was incredibly informative and enjoyed by all.
"The lads shared everything there is to know, from the history right up until the modern day. As Ireland is one of there main sales locations, they also did a good talk about modern day sales,” he explained. “Everyone really enjoyed the evening and was happy to have the night out.”
Following the talk, the group enjoyed some good conversation over refreshments provided by Tommy Tutty.
The recent talk was organised by the Friends of Ferguson Club, which was established to encourage and assist enthusiasts in their interest in the engineering achievements of the late Harry Ferguson, who invented the modern tractor. The Southeast branch meet in Tommy Tutty’s in Rathpierce monthly and currently has 25 members.
