WATCH: It took 80 hours but this Tipperary farmer has outdone himself with Christmas display


A Tipperary farmer who is famous for his Christmas light displays has outdone himself with his 2017 decorations.

Borrisokane man Murt Toohey has been decorating tractors for the past eight years, but decided to do see how far he could go this time around.

The result is two tractors and a trailer dripping in Christmas lights, with luminous silage coming out the back. Altogether, it took around 80 hours to put together.

"We were running out of things to put lights on," he wrote when sharing the video, which has around 10k views on Facebook.

Murt, a farmer, is a drone enthusiast and filmed the footage using his DGI Phantom drone which he purchased last August.

This year, Mr Toohey is hoping the display will raise some funds for local boy Billy Goulding, who was left paralysed after contracting a virus at two-years-old.

"Billy loves tractors especially blue ones," Murt told Independent.ie.

"His dad brings him for drives in the summer evenings they go looking for farmer making silage and watch all the machinery working so this is right up Billy’s street."

Donations can be made to Billy's fund here.
