Christmas tractors raise money for people affected by farm accidents

Tractors in Co Tipperary have been dressed to the nines to raise money for charity at Christmas, delighting festive farming fans.

The “Christmas Tractors of Nenagh” event sees machines from the Agricultural Contractors of North Tipperary covered in Christmas lights and decorations.

This year’s event will be recorded ahead of time and streamed on social media in support of a number of causes.

Embrace FARM is one of those, a charity which supports people affected by farm accidents – Billy’s Recovery is the other, in support of a paralysed young boy from a farming family.

People are encouraged to follow the hashtag #christmastractorsofnenagh to enjoy the fun on Saturday December 19.
