Take out your vintage vehicle for the Mark Hoey Memorial Race
A VINTAGE run is hosted by the friends and family of local man Mark Hoey, who died suddenly at his home from a brain hemorrhage on February 10, 2020 at the age of just 21. His love in life was farm machinery and he was driving tractors from when he left school.
Now there will be a tractor fundraising race in his memory on Sunday September 26th and everyone is invited to come and support the event.
Organizers want old tractors, cars, bicycles and every other vintage item, ranging from Drummonds Agri in Townrath to Keogh pub in Ballymakenny, Beaulieu Cross, Termonfeckin, Clogherhead, Grangebellew, Dunleer, Monasterboice, Cockle Road and Ballymakenny Road. Gathering at noon and departure at 1 p.m.
All funds received in support of the event will be donated to the Beaumont Hospital Foundation and used for research into brain hemorrhages, including subarachnoid hemorrhages, brain aneurysms and AVMs. Like the National Center for Research in Neurosurgery, research in this area is crucial to improving the care of neurosurgical patients treated at Beaumont.
They hope to raise thousands of dollars for the service.
