Joe and Paul finish tractor run

Over the St Patrick’s day weekend Joe and Paul Molloy completed their Journey of almost 515 miles from Mizen head to Malin head raising £23,000 in the process. This colossal journey was arranged as a fundraising event for two charities Kilronan special school in Magherafelt and Sands a stillbirth and neonatal bereavement organisation. The pair hoped to raise £10,000 for the charities and planned on taking almost four days to complete, however with their commitment and dedication that’s not how the story went.
