Last weekend paddy Kennedy broke records after reversing his tractor and trailer 30 feet or 30 miles to raise money for three separate charities.

The father of Carlow overturned his tractor and trailer for two and a half hours, starting their journey in I. T. Carlow, passing through three townlands and finishing at the end point of his trip to mount Leinster club Rangers GAA in Borris, County Carlow.

Paddy canceled both tractor and trailer through the curves of the bridges, bad bends and roundabouts, according to local stewards, volunteers from his local club and later the local police.

“Whenever I could, I pulled out to let traffic pass, and in part specifically several bridges, which were difficult,” said paddy. “Traffic came back a mile down the road until I was able to maneuver with a trailer, and again pull up.”

“I took it in my step,” said paddy, when asked about the difficulties of it. “All tractor operators should be able to go back to the trailer”, he said.

“We’re still gathering, but we hope that will be the borrowed funds in the amount of 6-7,000 for our charity projects,” said paddy.

These funds will be divided equally between MLR GAA club, which recently bought a 9-acre field for the new fields, the Irish cancer society, which helped many families in the club in recent years, and the Kevin bell repatriation trust.

Paddy recorded the event live on the page in Facebook and that just breaks the 100 metres when he pulled into Royal oak, 14km on the way and lost coverage. Paddy never left the tractor, but was able to stop from time to time for physio. Carlow farmer lost a leg in a tractor accident a few years ago.
