National Ploughing Championships 2017
It's easy to be distracted by the many amazing sights and sounds at the National Ploughing Championship but remember - the real stars of the show are the ones actually doing the ploughing!
In ten different categories ploughmen (we have no 'farmerettes' this year) from north and south of the county will be taking part.
President Michael D Higgins officially opened the Ploughing Championships on Tuesday and until the end of Thursday thousands will flock to the midlands for the annual even - to see the ploughing skills as well as the livestock, farm equipment, fashion, food and trade stands.
Tipperary is well represented in Screggan, Tullamore. Here is a list of all the locals taking part in competitions out in the fields. Good luck everyone!
