A charity tractor run is taking place with the help of Michael Hoey of Country Crest to help raise money for a number of charities.

“Fionn’s Parade of Lights”, will take place on Sunday 29 December in honour of a little boy who lost his life in January this year.

The family would like to invite farmers to take part in the tractor run and if the mood takes them, wear a costume for the fancy dress competition.

Fionn’s parents spoke about their “gentle” and “mischievous” little boy.

Fionn never once complained

“At age three and eight months Fionn developed recurring temperatures and was tragically diagnosed with neuroblastoma. He had almost two years of horrific treatment which required him to be an inpatient in the hospital throughout the treatment,” they said.

“Despite this horrific treatment, Fionn never once complained. He was always a beautiful and kind little boy who had an understanding of humanity and the world way beyond his tender years.”

Proceeds will be donated to Aoife’s Clown Doctors, Blood Bikes Dublin and Laura Lynn.

The tractor run will kick off from Man O War GAA club house in Dublin, with registration from 3pm and departure time at 5pm.

The parade will visit local towns including Lusk, Rush, Loughshinney, Skerries, Balbriggan and Balrothery and the entry fee is €20.
