Tractor Run in Bandon Church of Ireland Parishes

Bandon Union of Parishes in the Diocese of Cork held a Tractor Run on the afternoon of Sunday, 24th January. About 130 tractors took part and drew participants from across West Cork and farther afield.  Bandon curate, the Reverend David White went into a special period of tuition and training in tractor driving so that he could lead off the tractor run.

The 23 mile route looped from Bandon via the villages of Ballinadee and Ballinspittle. Registration and refreshments were in the Old Still at Bandon Mart. Tractor runs have become popular events nationwide and have a strong social aspect as well as being occasions for fundraising. Proceeds for the event will support Bandon Union of Parishes and Bandon Area Special Children (BASC).
