‘Dualla is just a small village, but every truck man in the country knows it’

Tipperary Truck Show, featuring a host of vintage, custom and working vehicles, will return to Dualla Show at the end of this month following a Covid-19-pandemic-induced absence.

The event – sponsored by Paddy Graham Truck & Trailer Servicing and MDS Truck Wash Naas – will take place on Sunday, 28th, 2022.

According to organisers of “the trucking event of the year”, the last show saw a record 700 trucks drive through the gates from all over Ireland and the UK.

They say the event, now in its seventh year, has become “one of the highlights of the trucker annual calendar”.

Daire Maher, one of the truck show organisers, says:

“I say it every year; Dualla is just a small village, but every truck man in the country knows it. It is what comes with Dualla that makes the Truck Show special.”

“The massive free kid’s area means a lot of truckers bring their families down as they can all enjoy themselves while doing something they love.”

The competition will be “keen” this year as participants battle it out for prizes for classes ranging from best new truck to best small fleet, best bullnose and best overseas reg.

The stalwarts of the Irish Tractor Pulling Committee are also returning this year, giving one of just a few pulls in Ireland this summer.

Organisers added: “We are guaranteed to see a fantastic display of horsepower.”

“As usual, the farm classes are open to everyone, so if you have a tractor and wish to enter, just bring it along early to get registered. Pulling starts at 11.30 am,” they concluded.
