It was like Glastonbury music festival with vintage tractors..
I finally managed to get to the ploughing championships both Irish and World this year. 115,500 attended yesterday including yours truly.
Biblical like multitudes descend on the site but the majority of people go for the trade stands. Oh to have lots of money 💰 to buy all these things like diggers and everything what any smallholder, big farmer, country dweller wants.
We set off at 5 and endured some very long traffic jams several miles from the ploughing We got there at 9.20 and I wandered round on my Jack Jones for 3 hours until my phone starting ringing and I made my way through the world and wife crowds and found them waiting at the beer tent. I only had a pint of Heineken for 6 Euros fifty.
Hope you like photos of my vintage tractor 🚜 friends?
What do you call someone who use to like tractors and doesn't any more? An extractor fan.
More photos from the ploughing tomorrow.
