This year will see the championships return to Screggan for a third year running. This is great news for the area of Screggan as it will possibly get a boost of around €40 million to the local economy.

The ploughing competitions themselves are extremely interesting to watch. Each participant displays an amazing level of skill with the control and straightness of their furrows. Some of the more vintage displays get huge attendance with the horse drawn plough classes.

The Ploughing Championships is the main event, but there is also a wide range of exhibitions on show ranging from machinery, livestock, trade stalls, classic & vintage motors, craft stalls, art exhibitions, interior design & fashion shows. This wide diversity of exhibits and trade stands makes the National Ploughing Championships the largest outdoor event of its kind in Europe.
Tickets for the festival will be available to purchase online on www.npa.ie/online-admission/ in early August.
