The National Ploughing Championships will take place in Ballintrane, Fenagh, Co. Carlow, next week (September 17-19).
In the run-up to this year’s event, AgriLand has been trawling the site – to see what awaits visitors (amidst the machinery trade stands). Warranting a special mention is the Irish debut of the Turkish-built Basak 5120 (pictured above).
Below – for your viewing pleasure – is a gallery depicting the on-site tractor highlights. In accompanying reports, we preview other (machinery-themed) attractions.
