Ireland’s National Ploughing Championships 2015 took place in Co. Laois for their second consecutive year at the location. Free’ist were lucky enough once again to be a part of it. Again, record breaking crowds descended on the green fields of Ratheniska to experience the championships. The total attendance for this year was a record breaking 281,000 – more than 75,000 on the opening day, 127,000 on the second day, &, 76,500 on the final day.
It was an incredible atmosphere both inside the tent and outside of the tent. Free’ist were there to give visitors the chance to taste their brand new popcorn, marshmallows and breakfast biscuits. The sugar free Caramel Crunch popcorn went down an absolute treat with everyone. And it will be off to Tullamore, County Offaly, for next year’s championships and we hope to see you all there!
