A map by the irish Farmers Journal detailing the venues for the National Ploughing Championship since its inception in Athy in 1933.

This year’s championship takes place in Stradbally, Laois and begins tomorrow.

Ploughing is an 83 year old moving event (Michael Maroney, Irish Farmers Journal)

    With all the prime tillage land around Meath and Louth seems nuts that it hasnt been north of the Dublin-Galway line in over 10 years.

    Bit ridiculous that the other 50% of the country has to travel such a journey every year (more if you include the West)
