Whelan and Tracey take titles again

John Whelan – Co. Wexford – and Eamonn Tracey – Co. Carlow – took first place in the senior reversible and conventional plough classes once again yesterday, September 19.

The pair came out overall winners of the senior classes following two days of ploughing – the first on stubble and the second day, which was the test match, on grass.
