Here, we bring you a further update from the site today (Friday) – with more pictures of tractors and machinery as they barrel into the Punchestown Event Centre.
Also, don’t forget to stay tuned to AgriLand for a full report from the auction over the coming days.

It’s not just about tractors of course; lots range from crates of spare parts right up to combines and forage harvesters. In all, there will be several hundred lots – most likely over 400, according to the auctioneers.
There will be a wide and varied selection of implements and machinery on offer too. Viewing is open from 8:30am at Punchestown tomorrow morning; the auction will kick off at 11:00am. To bid, you must be registered – on-site, online or through a ‘pre-bid’ service.
Two sales rings will operate on the day. One will be a ‘drive-through‘ auction, in which tractors and self-propelled equipment will parade through – one after the other.
The other sales ring will deal with other machines, implements and miscellaneous items. A picture of each lot will be displayed on a large screen, adjacent to this sales ring.
All of the lots being offered for sale will be on-site – at Punchestown. The actual selling will take place under cover, inside the event centre.
