The people of South East Ireland turned out in their thousands to see what is quickly becoming a festive must see,The Christmas Tractors of Carrick-on-Suir, last night.
15 Tractors decked out in Christmas Lights paraded around the streets of the town which borders the three counties of Tipperary, Waterford and Kilkenny.
This was the second year of what was the brainchild of local man Stuart John Downie. Downie thanked his fellow drivers and the visiting Grassmen from Co Antrim for their efforts at their own expense.'Its great to bring a smile to peoples faces and we are totally bowled over with the size of the turnout,there hasn't been this many people on the Streets of Carrick since the Tour de France''
Tony Clery, Chairman of Carrick on Suir Business Association, said 'COSBA are delighted to be involved in this great event,which is unique to Carrick.'
The effort put in by Stuart and Ciaran Kelly,and indeed all the drivers ,is huge and we were delighted to help out in any way we could.
Plans are already underway to make next years event even bigger and better, it brings a great boost to the local economy.
