Bunlahy, Granard will be the place to be on April 29 next when a vintage day will take place to raise some much needed funds for the development of a new community centre in the area.

The Killeen/Bunlahy Vintage Working Day will take place on the lands of Gerard and Kay Belton which will be hosted by Séan Connefry

Proceedings will kick off at 12:30pm and continue throughout the day until 5:30pm when spectators and participants alike will begin to retire following what is expected to be a busy, exciting and fun filled day out for all the family.

There is much planned for the event, so whether it’s an interest in participating in a bit of vintage ploughing with horses or tractors or even trying a hand at Loy digging, the Killeen/Bunlahy Vintage Working Day will provide an opportunity for everyone.

There will be a vintage machinery display and plenty of competitions and entertainment for all the kids to enjoy. Local referee Derek Fahy has also volunteered to sit in the dunking chair for the day, as competitors battle it out to win lots of prizes and dunk Derek, if possible. Other fun events on the day include, Dig a Dung, Threshing Display, Welly Throwing and all the entries have now been received by national school children in the area who submitted poems in the poetry competition.

“The winners will be announced in the programme of events and we received a great response to this,” Ms Monaghan explained.

“There will be something for everyone on the day and there is still time to organise displays and stands if people are interested in doing so. We will also be selling tickets for some great prizes including a 32” flatscreen TV, a notepad laptop and €50.

“Tickets will cost €2. We also have a gate prize of €100 so there will be plenty of fun in store on the day and lots of opportunities to win great prizes.”

Lots to see and do on the day, so why not come along and join in the fun.
