Engines are being revved and gearboxes being checked at Glinsk and ‘round the country as lorry, truck and tractor drivers gear up for the ‘Great Glinsk Truck and Tractor run’ on Sunday, July 17th.
On a number of previous occasions, truck drivers have come together at various locations to raise funds for worthy causes.
However, this is the first time that Glinsk will be the mecca for a convoy with a view to raising funds for local causes. The glens of Glinsk will definitely re-echo to the sound of many powerful engines as they weave their way to the neighbouring towns of Creggs and Glenamaddy and return to Glinsk again.
Tractors, big and small, are also being prepared for the day and they will follow another circuit around the local area. A number of vintage tractors are also committed to joining in the fun and a third route is being planned for vintage entrants. All vehicles participating are being supplied with sponsorship cards and it is hoped that each vehicle will be accompanied by at least €50 sponsorship.
Anybody from near or far who would like to support this event can obtain sponsorship cards from any member of the local committee and follow the event on Facebook for further details.
