Tractor run to be dedicated to two young men who died earlier this year

A county Armagh tractor run will be dedicated to two young men who tragically lost their lives earlier this year.

The tractor run, next Saturday, November 26, is being organised by members of Mountnorris Young Farmers’ club.

Mark Hutcheson and Andrew Gass, both 17 and students at Southern Regional College in Armagh, had been members of the club since around the age of 13.

They died in January when the car they were travelling in left the Cladymilltown Road between Markethill and Newtownhamilton while the were on their way to college.

Mark and Andrew, who both studied welding and fabrication, had a big interest in farming.

Andrew Porter, of Mountnorris YFC, said organisers are expecting a big turnout for Saturday’s event and all proceeds will be donated to charities chosen by the Hutcheson and Gass families.

Registration will be at 11.30am at Mountnorris Presbyterian Church Hall, kindly granted and the cost of £10 per tractor will include a barbecue afterwards at the church hall.
