Convoy to Cooley
When we arrived at the Ballymac roundabout just outside Dundalk on our way to the Cooley truck show, which was organised by Brendan Sheelan and a hard working committee, who were in charge of the forth coming weekend’s entertainment.
Nathan Carter’s truck was the first to line up to escort this Convoy down the road to Cooley. His truck was the first of over 130 trucks and when they were all in line, it was a sight to behold.
As they approached the local site, Nathan’s truck pulled off to unload his gear for the concert that was taken place later on that night.
The rest of the trucks made their way to a field nearby, and with the trucks safely parked up, it give them a chance to walk around, and have a chat and view the other vehicles, some that had travelled from all over the length and breadth of Ireland and the UK.
As the late evening approached, it was starting to get very busy at the venue, where a large Marquee and big screens outside and inside showed the Gravity dancers which were trained by Margaret Hanlon. They performed a few dances to a Nathan Carter medley, and then Matt Leavy from neighbouring Co Meath, a top Country singer warmed the crowd for the main attraction of the evening, Nathan Carter.
When Nathan played into the wee small hours, the large crowd left very happy indeed.
Then next day a large crowd who came from far and near to view the trucks on display. To finish off what was an enjoyable weekends entertainment, there was one more surprise in store as Marty Mone from (Hit the Diff fame) arrived by Helicopter into the field and he made his way to the Marquee to entertain the large crowd both young and old that had gathered there.
