Clonoulty Rossmore Vintage Club

 

2017 Rally Date - Sunday 20th August

David Brown Gathering:

 

On Sunday the 20th August 2017 Clonoulty Rossmore Vintage Club will host their 17th Annual Vintage Rally in Clonoulty Village. We are planning a spectacular display of David Brown tractors, with 75 tractors being used to spell out the name. This is the first time the David Brown tractor will get the recognition it truly deserves. The David Brown is a very popular tractor within the agricultural community.

 

David Brown's involvement in farm machinery began in 1936 when the company, then a subsidiary of the local family firm David Brown and Sons (Huddersfield) Ltd., collaborated with Harry Ferguson in the manufacture of the legendary Ferguson-Brown Tractor. Built initially in the corner of the David Brown gear factory, the Ferguson-Brown model was the world's first production tractor to be equipped with hydraulic lift and converging 3-point linkage; a revolutionary concept which soon became a fundamental part of farm tractor design the world over. http://www.dbtractors.co.uk/

 

There will be onsite catering and toilet facilities the usual side shows and stalls (Pets corner, sheaf throwing, bicycle obstacle course, guess the weight of the bullock, bouncy castle etc.)   will cater for all tastes and needs. Mo Cara animal rescue will hold a dog show on the day.

 

The threshing is always a great favourite with the crowd; John Leamy’s, Dualla Allan Bros 1925 Threshing Mill will be at full throttle powered by TJ Donnelly’s, Clonoulty David Brown 950 Implematic. Credit is due to the large number of tractor owners who turn up year after year with their fantastic array of tractor makes and models all in gleaming condition.

 

A focal point on the day will be a number of trade stands, whom we would like to thank for their support.  If you are interested in having a stand please contact Mary on 087 3522726.

 

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support and help, especially with our recent bucket collection without which we wouldn’t be in the position to help the very deserving South Tipperary Hospice Movement whom we have given over €300,000 since our inception.
