Ploughing 2013

Dr. Ailish Byrne, Senior Agricultural Manager with Ulster Bank attended Day 2 of the National Ploughing Championships.  It was not surprising that a record crowd of nearly 100,000 were in attendance given the great weather and site – great access with no traffic delays and easy to navigate.

She used  thevisit to the national ploughing championships to visit with Teagasc, IFA, Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine, ICMSA and Macra Na Feirme.  There was generally a good atmosphere at the championships with farmers delighted with the good weather and the current strong milk price.  While visiting the Macra Na Feirme stand Ailish used the opportunity to finalise arrangements for Ulster Banks sponsorship of their National Conference with the rally chairman Eric Driver (picture).  The Macra Na Feirme rally takes place in Mount Wolseley Hotel Carlow from the 25th to the 27th October.
