A Look Back At The National Ploughing Championships 2019

Hundreds of thousands of people descended on Co. Carlow for the three days of the National Ploughing Championships last week.

Among them was Pat Flynn, reporting for Clare FM – and in this week’s Farm Focus podcast, he brings us a flavour of the action from there (from 4:30).

Also at the Ploughing, and on this week’s Farm Focus, was Nick Swallow who is New Zealand’s Trade Commissioner to London.


He has a chat with us about his experience of the ploughing here and what he feels Irish and Kiwi farmers can learn from each other (from 12:00).

This week’s podcast also sees Pat Clarke from Teagasc in Athenry return with some general farming advice (1:00).
