LISTEN: Strokestown TY students rebuild 1956 Ferguson 20 tractor for childhood cancer raffle

Three Strokestown TY students have combined their love of agricultural machinery with their transition year student enterprise programme to raise money for Childhood Cancer Foundation Ireland, a national charity providing vital play services for children with cancer.

Andrew Jordan, Jack Beirne and Mark Rogers from Scoil Mhuire in Strokestown have been making the most of our latest lockdown by restoring a 1956 Ferguson 20 tractor.

They’ve been telling MaryClaire Grealy all about it, Andrew starts with where the idea came from.
