    A few snaps from today's gathering down at Murphy's Motors to celebrate 100 years of Ford plus raise funds for EMBRACE. I know at least three other members were there so they might have some snaps to add.

    Very nice job on this 7810. 20171230_140729_zpspj4htgf9.jpg

    A converted 8210, I don't know what the engine was out of. 20171230_141158_zps8aixz0ad.jpg 20171230_141301_zpsokfmlb3r.jpg

    7600 4wd still in regular use. A clean 4600 beside it, one of a pair there today. 20171230_141611_zpsnnveunaa.jpg

    I know Cork has a fetish for wide rubber!!! 20171230_142207_zps3u6i2n1a.jpg

    3 nice working tractors, one of these features regularly on here!!! 20171230_142222_zpsmxfxwza6.jpg

    Another selection, lovely 7810!

    Some nice restored ones especially the 7810! 20171230_142309_zpsr9ihoaom.jpg

    Another shot of the 8210 and a 6600 which featured on here but I just admit I was loving the 7000 beside it! 20171230_142317_zpsuht82tq4.jpg

    Thanks for the pics Nash :Thumbp2:
    Few nice 7810's there plus the Q-cabbed 8210. Like the 4600 too with the front weights. Really sets it off.

    Some great pics there @nashmach .That 7000 looks very original. When they first came out in early 70’s there was no other tractor could touch them for profarmance or spec.

    Ah ha, had a feeling it was a combine engine alright! :Thumbp2:

    To be honest, the one that I didn't photograph (partly hidden by the 6600) in the last photo was even nicer ex farm condition. Unusually there was no 5000 there today.

    I Might be odd but I get bored looking at rows of restored tractors so today's event was great from that viewpoint.

    Great pics Nash, would have liked to get to that. It's a pity there are so few shows /tractor runs and gatherings up this part of the country. I'd love to attend more but it always involves trekking to the far end of the country.

    115 tractors there in total today and not a JD in sight! Only one MF hidden in the backyard and I did spot a Ursus or Zetor over in the loading area :Whistle2:

    2018 event is being held on the last Sunday of the year (between Christmas and New Year) in the mart in Kilkenny for the blue fans amongst us.
