Athy is gearing up for its first big tractor pulling event this weekend.

The Tractor Pulling afternoon will take place this Sunday, June 24, at the Hunting Grounds in Athy.

It promises to be a day out for the whole family, as well as those interested in tractor pulling.

The competition consists of tractor drivers pitting their skill, as well as their machinery, against each other in a bid to pull sleighs over courses.

It is the first time that the competition has come to Athy.

There will also be a vintage machinery display and children’s entertainment including bouncing castles and pony rides.

Competition entries open at 10am and the event starts at 1pm.
