2019 Ploughing Championships, Fenagh, Co Carlow

At the end of the three glorious days the attendance figure for the 88th Championships came to a record breaking 297,000 visitors. The good weather and the excitement of a change of venue helped lift the spirits of farmers and their families in these difficult times.
