 Over 100 tractors to take to the road on Easter Sunday

Over one hundred tractors will take to the roads this Easter Sunday and travel from Glenties to Maghery to raise funds to help two wonderful local children.
The event is being organised to raise funds for both Lucy Gallagher and Josh McPaul.
Wee Lucy Gallagher suffers from harlequin ichthyosis which is a rare genetic skin disorder that means her body generates too much skin, causing cuts and abrasions.
Josh McPaul is a young boy who has severe disabilities and is both blind and deaf.
Around 60 tractors will make their way from the midlands on Easter Sunday to join Donegal tractor drivers at the petrol station before they take off at 1pm.
The ‘Hills of Donegal’ tractor run will travel from Glenties, down the scenic road, to Cloughwilly, Meenacross and on to Maghery.
It is envisaged that the run will take around three hours.
The event depend on weather conditions on Sunday, April 21.
