Close to 700 vehicles took part in a tractor run staged last weekend in memory of a young Clontibret man. Such was the scale of the sight that, as our photograph by Rory Geary illustrates, only the heightened vantage point of a tractor itself could afford onlookers an adequate view of the spectacle. The event marked what would have been the 18th birthday of Jake Brennan of Clontibret, who lost his life in a road traffic accident last year. It has already generated in excess of €16,000 for the Irish Road Victims Association and that figure is still rising as donations continue to be made via the GoFundMe link Jake’s family and friends who organised the event have expressed their appreciation this week to all who contributed to the outstanding success of the venture, including the Clontibret O’Neills GFC, the Gardaí and traffic control stewards and all those who sponsored, gifted or donated.
