Video: Allenwood tractor run

The Joe and Lizzie Cronly Memorial Tractor Run took place on Sunday, April 6, around the Allenwood area.

Kicking off at noon from Allenwood GAA Club, the event attracted a strong crowd, with vital funds being raised for Friends of Naas Hospital. While the rain that morning did dampen the turnout slightly, there was still a very good showing from lots of vehicles and their owners.

“We’re delighted with the event,” organiser Julie Cronly revealed. “We’re still taking in donations, but so far we’re at €3,200 and counting!”

Now in its third year, the rally is run for a very personal reason for Julie and her family. Her father died in Naas Hospital three years ago after a prolonged stay, while her mother passed away there at Christmas.

“In the past three years, I’m delighted to say we’ve raised €15,000 for the hospital,” she told the Leinster Leader. Anyone who wishes to make a donation, can contact Julie on 087-9774710 or Paul on 086-8100251. Paul Wright, Sean and Shane Leeson, Thomas McKenna and Liam Doyle.

Ger Boland was on hand to capture the highlights for the Leinster Leader.
