Christmas Tractors of Carrick-on-Suir Kilkenny bound this week

It's in aid of a Waterford teenager

A 35km Christmas Tractor run will travel through three counties on Wednesday.

The “Christmas Tractors of Carrick-on-Suir” in County Tipperary has seen over 20,000 spectators line out in recent years to view vehicles decked out with festive lights and music.

This year, they’ve decided to increase their convoy to five towns in one night across Tipperary, Waterford and Kilkenny.

The run is in aid of a Waterford teenager whose mother recently passed away from cancer and whose father requires 24-hour cardiac care.

Organiser Stuart Downie, who lives in Kilkenny, has told KCLR News that they’ll not be announcing their route in advance in a bid to prevent crowds from turning up.

But proceedings can be followed online via their Facebook page The Christmas Tractors of Carrick on Suir
