Harvest pics: Still plenty of work to be done
The fine weather last week made for some great harvest pictures. Entries came in thick and fast to the Harvest Photo Competition. Rory Rushe sent in the image at the top of the page.
Rory also captured the image below of the same outfit. David Hartford was harvesting winter barley with his John Deere W540 combine harvester. The Case IH 185 was attached to a Broughan trailer.
Peter Niblock is responsible for the shot below, which is of Trevor ‘Cleet’ Thompson of J.D. Townley & Son contracting. He was combining winter barley overlooking Strangford Lough, Co. Down.
John Coffey captured Tadgh O’Driscoll (below) harvesting in Enniskeane, Co. Cork. Black clouds were threatening overhead, but the field was baled by the following morning.
Tied and ready to go, Richie Lowe and Jerome O’Connor were drawing bales of barley straw (below) from Kilfinny to Croagh in Co. Limerick before the rain fell.
Steve Corish took this shot below of Stewart Agri cutting winter barley in Ballybrennan, Tomhaggard, Co. Wexford, as the sun was setting.
