It's not something you expect to see in the middle of Offaly, but the JCB Dancing Diggers show is coming.

The world famous event is taking place during the Construction and Quarry Machinery Show on April 21st and 22nd next year.

The team are experts in driving Backhoe Loaders and making them do things you would not imagine a digger could do.

But the moves that are the most amazing are when drivers use their hydraulics to lift the diggers clear of the ground and perform hand-stands.

Denis Murray is managing director of ECI JCB: "We are delighted to bring the JCB Dancing Diggers to Ireland. They have toured all over the world and are a spectacular sight."

"Ireland is a perfect location for a show like CQMS’17 and very accessible for both domestic and international visitors."

The CQMS’17 exhibition takes place at Molloy’s Quarry, Tinnycross in Tullamore.

It will offer buyers and sellers a chance to see machines at work with two large live demonstration zones - as well as a machinery launch zone with the latest technology.

Among the confirmed exhibitors are JCB, Kubota UK, Geith International, Topcon, Jim Macadam Equipment/Case, Sandvik, CDE Global, Whelan Planthire, and Renault Trucks Ireland.
