John Corley drove up Dublin's most iconic street on his tractor recently.

John, from Kilkelly in County Mayo, drove his Massey Ferguson 135 up the street recently to launch the 2019 Dublin2Mayo Tractor Run.

His short but sweet journey included plenty of angry horn-beeping, passing the Luas lines and even a restart in front of the Spire!

It's fair to say, nobody knew what to make of it.

Check out the video here:

Last year, the event raised a whopping €96,424 for both Crumlin Hospital and Castlebar Special Care Unit.

The 2019 run will see a number of tractors travelling through the streets of Dublin before landing at their final destination in Mayo.
