The Fingal Vintage Society’s commemoration event brought together vintage and classic tractor enthusiasts in a setting that provided an insight into how important the International Harvester (IH) tractor brand was in Ireland for many farmers and contractors.

The event included some rare video clips of early International Harvester history from the days of the McCormick era, right up until the 74 Series models. There was an overview of the history of IH both in the US and in Ireland, where the contribution of Cyrus H McCormick, the founder of the IH brand, was recognised for his Irish heritage – his ancestors came from Co Westmeath.
