175 Men went to mow….

…went to mow a meadow.

Well, 140 acres actually.

In another charity event, 175 combine harvesters simultaneously cut the field, and easily gained a new Guinness World Record, beating the previous record of a (now seemingly paltry) 57!

The feat  was achieved in Platin, Duleek, Co. Meath, Ireland on Saturday August 15th 2009, and  is set to raise cash for various charities –  Barnardos, The National Rehabilitation Hospital, Gary Kelly Cancer Support and Self Help (Africa), and organised by a group calling themselves Combines 4 charity

Quite a spectacle!  As one commentator asked, ‘were the pubs shut in Ireland that day?!’
