A monster tractor run, in memory of Longford lady Mona Walsh, takes place on Sunday, May 1, starting from St Mary's Community Centre & Sports Hub, Edgeworthstown at 12.30pm, and with registration commencing from 10.30am.
This charity event, in aid of The Stroke Unit at the Midland Regional Hospital, Mullingar, was originally scheduled to take place in May 2020 but unfortunately, Covid-19 intervened and it was postponed.
A mother and daughter from Longford town have turned their lives around by losing nine and a half stone between them in just eight months with Slimming World.
The Walsh Family said they are delighted to be finally getting the opportunity to stage the event in memory of Mona Walsh, Corwella, Edgeworthstown, who passed away unexpectedly on October 7, 2019, next Sunday.
The family explained, “Mona's passing was a huge shock and left a massive void in our lives. During her short illness, she received the utmost care from the staff in Mullingar Hospital.
“In return, and as a gesture of thanks and to assist them in their endeavours to care for stroke patients in the future, we are organising and running this monster tractor run on Sunday with all proceeds going to The Stroke Unit at the Midland Regional Hospital, Mullingar.”
Longford suffered the agony of a single point defeat against Kildare in Round 2 of the TG4 Ladies Football Leinster Intermediate Championship at the Monaduff grounds, Drumlish on Sunday last.
Entry to the tractor run is €20 and the Walsh Family ask that if you are around on Sunday, to come out and support the event. “And as always, from our own "Mrs Doyle", the cup of tae will be on offer and refreshments.”
