Tribute paid to Carlow woman with ' great heart'

National Ploughing Championships has paid tribute to the late Ailish Tracey from Carlow

The National Ploughing Championships (NPA) has extended the deepest sympathy and condolences with the family and loved ones of Ailish Tracey from Garryhill, Carlow, “who will always be remembered with the highest affection and regard not only in the ploughing community in Ireland but around the world”. 

Ailish was a keen cyclist and business owner, a loving mother and grandmother, and wife of the multiple world ploughing champion Eamonn Tracey. 

“She was exceptionally encouraging of Eamonn’s ploughing successes and triumphs, and of the Tracey family ploughing dynasty.

“Ailish will be deeply missed and remembered by all as having a great heart, always looking out for others combined with a quick warm wit.”
