10th Anniversay Show: Organiser's Statement
Many thanks to everyone who supported the 10th anniversary Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show at Magherabuoy House Hotel Portrush yesterday. Despite the rough weather the turnout of visitors to the Show was terrific. I hope that the event was successful for all of our traders; some of whom had travelled lengthy distances to be at the show. The support of visitors attending was greatly appreciated - we hope you found something which you liked. Thanks also to the team of Show helpers. Many thanks to the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Council; Michelle Knight McQuillan for opening the Show and to our good friend Santa for calling in to see young and older tractor fans. Thanks also to Trevor Clarke and the Staff at Magherabuoy House Hotel who ensured the event went very smoothly - remember if you would like to book a short break, conference or other event up at Portrush you can contact the Hotel direct on 028 70823507. Alternatively if you are passing through the area and would like some great home baking; Leonna's Tearoom at the Hotel is a very convenient stopping off point. Thanks also to the Alzheimer's Society NI volunteers who worked tirelessly throughout the event and raised £600 Thanks to everyone who entered the prize draws and bid in the auction. Thanks to all who donated prizes for the prize draws including Stena Line who generously donated the top prize. It is amazing that the event has reached 10 years. This is attributable to you; our stallholders and visitors to the Show. Your support, loyalty and encouragement over these last ten years has been absolutely marvellous. Your messages and words of encouragement have been and continue to be deeply appreciated. Looking to the future the event is planned for GOOD FRIDAY 25th March 2016 and Friday 25th November 2016. Again, my sincere thanks to each one of you. I wish you and your families a very Happy Christmas and may your hopes for 2016 come to fruition. Sincerest good wishes to you all. Alastair

National Minitrac and Muddyfarm ModelsNational Minitrac are the organisers of the Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show. This popular twice yearly event has been taking place since 2005. Shows take place each Easter and at the end of November.
The event was the forerunner for farm toy and model events on the island of Ireland. Each Show has a multitude of trade stands offering all the big name brands in the world of toy and model tractors. A feature of the Show has been the Muddy Show Tractors produced exclusively by National Minitrac at Muddytrac Farm in County Antrim.
The National Minitrac muddy models have been sold locally and exported further afield. In late 2014 a re-organisation took place which saw National Minitrac focussing on social media and management of the Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show. Sales of muddy and clean models, machinery, books, dvds, gifts and other merchandise have been placed with Muddyfarm Models.
