208 Irish Combine Harvesters Break World Record
A record breaking 208 combine harvesters took to a 180-acre site in Co Meath last weekend in a bid to break a new Guinness World Record.
The attempt was organised by Combines 4 Charity with the aim of getting as many combine harvesters working in a field at the same time.
The record attempt was to raise much needed funds for four charities; Barnardos, Self Help Africa, The National Rehabilitation Trust and the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre. The donation page is still open and you can contribute here. Below, the combine harvesters line up, ready for action:
Take a look at this video of the record getting underway:
It was a spectacle to behold where combines had travelled from as far as Cork Clare & Roscommon. A HUGE thank you to all who took part it’s these people who are now world record holders.

According to RTÉ News some farmers had to travel at 4am in order to make it to the site in time. They also report that tens of thousands of euros have been raised so far. Below, more footage of the attempt in Co Meath:
