The Irish Rovers are now rolling closer to the finish line on their great tour of the UK in aid of CRITICAL.

The journey, which began with four vintage tractors setting out from John O’Groats at the tip of the UK is now nearing Land’s End at the very bottom of the UK, with the team of Rathcormac’s Tom Fitzgerald and Mitchelstown’s Kieran O’Donoghue, Ballinhassig’s James Keohane and Ballinascarty man, Paddy Ryan, on board the convoy of vintage tractors

With the fine weather in tow, this week was another one filled with new sights and excitement as the crew pulled in to the Castle Combe Steam Rally for two nights, where they got to show off their vintage tractors and highlight their journey thus far to those in attendance.
