Ploughing Championship

Ploughing Championship

Longford annual Ploughing Championship and Field Day takes place this Sunday, 12th April. The host farmers are Pauric Dalton and Frank Lyons and the venue is Foxhall, Legan. This is the most prestigious outdoor field event of the year and will include the only Celebrity Challenge in Ireland. Hopefully, weather permitting it will be a great day of good ploughing and good general entertainment for all the family. We hope it is successful and well supported.
