Excitement is building ahead of the 2019 National Ploughing Championships which will take place at Ballintrane, Fenagh from September 17-19 of this year.

A sign has gone up marking the location of the site and preparations are well-underway in the county.  

Carlow County Council has scheduled its second meeting of the Ploughing Co-Ordination Group in preparation for the event coming to the Dolmen County later this year. 

The event has an economic impact of €35 million and boasts approximately 1,700 exhibitors, almost 300,000 visitors across 2 million feet of trade space and of course, over 300 ploughing competitors taking part as well.
