Harvest pics: Limerick to Louth…caught between the showers
The rain of the past week resulted in a steady flow of entries to AgriLand‘s Harvest Photo Competition. From Co. Limerick to Co. Louth, we received shots of the small bit of action that took place from the week past, but more of earlier harvest activity.
Although most shots were from weeks’ previous, as only a small number of combines made their way to the field from Monday to Thursday of the week gone by.
The picture at the top of the article was sent in by Darren O’Neill (Wexford Agri Photos) and features Stewart Agri cutting wheat in Tacumshane, Co. Wexford, with a Claas Lexion 760.
Darren also sent in the image (below) of a Claas Lexion 630 harvesting barley in Broadway, Co. Wexford, for Butler’s Air Hill Farms.
Martin Maher was busy drawing straw in the snap below.
Stephen O’Regan sent in the shots in the gallery below. Grain was being drawn in while harvesting in east Cork.
Pat Wade is pictured below. Rochford Agri Contractors was cutting Pat’s spring barley last Sunday, August 18, near Bannow Bay, Co. Wexford. The image was sent in by Yvonne Whitty.
Yvonne also sent in some working shots (in the gallery below). The Ceeragh Islands can be seen in the background.
Pat Mullins from Kildorrery, Co. Cork, captured two of the images in the gallery below. A crop of Tower winter barley was being harvested. The final image in the gallery was taken by Nick Laraman; he caught the sunset over the rows of straw.
Richie Lowe sent in the image (below) of the winter barley harvest in Adare, Co. Limerick.
Gareth Murphy snapped some action around his local area of Termonfeckin, Co. Louth. The images can be seen in the gallery below.
