The sun is shining brightly and it’s hotting up at the sixteenth annual Finn Valley Vintage Rally and Threshing Day which just got underway this afternoon, at the Setanta hurling pitch Crossroads, Killygordon.
There will be a large number of events and attractions on the day including stationary engines, bale rolling, tractor balancing and children’s sports including a free bouncy castle, and of course, traditional threshing.
A large number of fine examples of vintage farm machinery and cars will also be on display with entrants coming from all over the North West.
Organised by the Finn Valley VintageClub, the rally has raised tens of thousands of euro for local charities over the last 16 years.
According to the organisers, the idea of the event is to promote agricultural, vintage and other items of heritage and also provide a venue suitable for the enthusiast to show items of yesteryear.
Club Chairman, Jason Patton, said they also wanted to allow the public the opportunity to view such rare treasures.
Gates are open and admission will cost just seven euro for adults and three euro for teenagers. Younger children will be admitted free of charge. For further information, call 087 1097703.
