The team at M.Large set out for Stradbally, Laois for the Irish Forestry Woodland & Bio Energy show 2013.

Arriving a day before the show, the boys were directed to our designated show space in the Woodland area.

On first look, it took a little imagination to visualise the setting but a days hard grafting with our own team and the helpful Clarke Cunningham lads, made our rough n ready corner site into something of a Disneyland for forestry fans.

The show was a big deal for us and a lot of preparation went into making a good show for our visitors.

So for those who didn’t get to the event, here’s what we were showing.
