De Courcey Harvest and Ploughing 2014

De Courcey Harvest and Ploughing 2014

Encouraged by John & Mary O’Neill, members from Cork attended at Barrel’s Cross, Kinsale, on the Monday of the August week end 2014 to see and admire a collection of Ford agricultural tractors demonstrate the art of harvesting followed by ploughing, ranging from the primitive workings going back to the year 1917 right up to the super machines of 2014.




We assembled at Bandon motors for the now accustomed Clarke hospitality and left in convoy to arrive on site by 1:00 pm, having taken the scenic coast route, fabled for West Cork.

At first glance the field was a hive of activity.  Pictures speak for themselves.
