160 trucks to hit road

'WE GOT a great big convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight?'

The roads of County Wexford will belong to an astonishing 160 plus trucks on Saturday, September 24 next, as a massive convoy traverses the county.

The truckers are hitting the road to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society, and they will be collecting funds along the way, so spectators are most welcome to turn out along the route and cheer them on.

They leave Breen's Yard, The Harrow at around 10.30 a.m. travelling to Ballyedmond, Wexford, Oylegate, Enniscorthy, Ferns, Camolin, Gorey, Ballyedmond, and back to Breen's Yard at around 3.30 p.m.

Organiser Martin Doran from Tomsallagh, Ferns, hopes it will be a spectacular sight, as trucks of all shapes and sizes, old and new, have signed up to take part.

'It will be a right old fashioned convoy,' said participant Mark Mulhall. 'There will be a barbecue in Breen's Yard afterwards, and all proceeds from the run and the barbeque are going to the Irish Cancer Society. It's going to be a sight to behold.' All are welcome back to Breen's Yard, The Harrow, for the barbecue after the run.

'Let them truckers roll, ten-four, Rubber Duck.'
