This year the club are hosting a Fordson and High Nellie display, and there’s a trophy up for grabs for the best original tractor. Also on the day there will be a competition for the best-restoredFerguson and Massey-Ferguson, and for the winning tractor there will be the Martin Farrell Memorial Shield; this is going to be an annual event for both tractor classes.
Rosdillig is known as one of the very largest threshing events in the country, with at least ten mills in action. Indeed, in 2003 the event saw no less than 25 mills threshing at the one time. The customary side shows will provide entertainment for all the family, including a dog show and baby show, as well as static displays of vintage and classic cars, motorbikes, stationary engines and so on. “Come toSouth Carlowand enjoy a glimpse of times past”; for more details, contact Secretary Elaine Stanley on 087 7751895.
