All makes of tractors and trucks are invited to take part in this year’s Haulie Murphy Memorial Run on this Sunday (August 26th), which will depart Glanworth at around 12.30pm. Vehicles are asked to assemble in the field opposite the cemetery in Glanworth, with registration from 11am.

Sunday’s route is similar to last year’s. All going according to plan, the run should take about two and half hours. Drive safely!

Glanworth National School, which will soon reopen after the summer holidays, will be this year’s beneficiary. Parents from the school will be assisting with catering, etc and donations of cakes, confectionery, etc would be very welcome.


Management and staff from The Local Bar in Glanworth have been to the forefront in organising this year’s run.

As part of their input, the bar is hosting a fundraising night in aid of the event on this Saturday (25th), music is by Steve McCormack and there will be a raffle for a variety of prizes that includes ‘a night away’, a freeze branding service voucher (which would be of use to those in the farming sector) and lots more beside.


Then on Sunday from 12.30pm events will be held in the field opposite the cemetery with lots of fun and craic for all the family, including music with Donie O’Sullivan and Tommy O’Doherty.

Central to the success of the Haulie Murphy Memorial Tractor Run is community involvement and Glanworth has never been found wanting in this regard.

Having enjoyed so much good weather this year, it would be a major plus if the rain stayed away on Sunday – fingers crossed it will be fine.

However, wet or dry – the run goes ahead! Do join the run and the fun, with proceeds to Glanworth National School.
