Pics: Dublin2Mayo ‘beasts from the east’ roll into the wilds of the west

The Dublin2Mayo charity tractor run completed its two-day journey across Ireland this weekend; it set out from Dublin on Good Friday and arrived at Breaffy House Hotel, Castlebar the following day.

The run was held in aid of a number of charitable causes, including Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin, and the special care baby unit at Mayo University Hospital.

It was organised by: Brendan Colgan; John Corley; Brian Kelly; Tom Lavelle; Padraig Gallagher; and Adrian Maye.

On day one, the participants passed through: Leixlip; Maynooth; Kilcock; Enfield; Kinnegad; Mullingar; Ballinalack; Rathowen; Edgwardstown; and Longford.

On day two, they scooted through: Lanesborough; Roscommon; Ballymoe; Castlerea; Ballinlough; Ballyhaunis; Claremorris; Knock; Kiltimagh; Bohola; Ballivor; and Castlebar.

At that point, just 20 tractors and drivers were involved (due to restrictions on the numbers allowed at that location). The tally clearly swelled, as the convoy neared each new town on the route.
