Girley harvest Festival - August 24th

Another of those annual and welcome events, the Girley Harvest Festival, takes place this year in August 24th. There is a large array of events, from traditional agricultural displays of threshing, ploughing, tilling and bailing, to more modern exhibitions of farming hardware. There are good novelty events also, from the Donkey Derby to pig racing. When farmers go out to play, they do it in style. Sounds like a very good outing. Above are Pat Kerrigan, the event logo, Damian McGrane, Peter Timmons and Johnny Brady T.D. For a detailed programme, please go to www.girleyharvestfestival.com

Obviously a great deal of work goes into events of this kind and, equally obviously, someone has to come up with the cash to put it on. Peter Timmons of Meath Farm Machinery (http://www.meathfarmmachinery.com/) is the individual who has shouldered this burden and given life to this event.
