Nod for Irish ploughing match

IRELANDs National Ploughing Championships – the "Ploughing" – are set to take place on 2-4 Oct in Ballacolla, Laois.

This follows the National Ploughing Association being given the green light to hold the event by the Ministers Expert Group as the threat of foot-and-mouth recedes. As last year, the event will take place on David Lalor and Robin Talbots adjoining farms which offer, by Irelands standards at least, a dry site for the competitions, exhibition area and demonstration plots.

The farms are situated on the main Abbeyleix-Rathdowney road and can be accessed from the N8 from Dublin and Cork, the N7 from Limerick, the N10 from Waterford and Kilkenny and the N6 from Galway and Roscrea.

For further information contact the National Ploughing Association on 00353 (0)507 25125 or &#42
