Speaking at the official launch, organiser Johnny McAteer said the committee is looking forward to facilitating another successful family fun-filled day to raise vital funds and awareness for PIPS Hope and Support.



He told Newry Times, “We as a committee are delighted that we are able to deliver this fun-filled day for those of all ages and interests. 

“The day will have a number of initiatives including; a Display of Ferguson Tractors and Implements, Tractor Run, Threshing Display, Family Fun Day and Live Music.

“The committee’s main aim is to raise as much awareness and donations for our chosen charity PIPS Hope and Support.

“This organisation we believe is vital within our local community and has supported many individuals, families and organisations since its formation.



“We are very pleased to be able to play a part in ensuring they can remain sustainable and resourced. We look forward to welcoming all on Sunday 15 and would be delighted to see as many as possible in attendance,” he added.

Padraig Harte, PIPS Hope and Support Fundraising Coordinator, said PIPS Hope and Support were thrilled to be the main charity benefitting from the organising committee’s efforts. “PIPS Hope and Support are thrilled and appreciative of the support from Ballyholland Tractor Run. 

“The committee has been working tirelessly over the recent period to ensure this event is a major success and has something for all ages and abilities.



“Without the support of committees like Ballyholland Tractor Run and the local community, PIPS Hope and Support simply couldn’t deliver the much-needed help and support services we provide to our community.

He added, “We wish the organising committee the very best for the event and look forward to working with them.”
