Best In Their Field!

23/09/2013 Best In Their Field!

Driving like they were late for mass, 110 tractors took to the roads of Meath on 18 August  in a 20km “Run” which took approximately 2 and a half  hours to complete, with a stop for refreshments on the way. The novel event raised over €3000 for Rehab services in County Meath as part of the 3rd annual Edward Cosgrave Memorial Fundraiser and Tractor Run.

The fundraiser was organised by Jim Cosgrave whose brother Edward, who passed away rather suddenly in 2010 and who was a huge supporter of Rehab over many years. This event brings together his passions in life – farming,  tractors and giving back to his community.

Representatives for RehabCare  present at the event said;  “ RehabCare is extremely grateful to the “Tractor Run” Committee headed by Martin Furey , Jim Cosgrave and of course Edward’s daughter and sons , who worked so hard to make this event so successful and in raising €3155 for RehabCare’s Childrens’ Respite Service in Navan.  These much needed funds will be used to further enhance the interior of the respite house in line with the ever changing needs of the children who attend. We really appreciate the support of the Edward Cosgrave Memorial Tractor Run."
