TY – Ploughing Championships

It was an early start for Transition Years on September 26th, who travelled to Stradbally in County Laois to attend the final day of the annual National Ploughing Championships.

The weather quickly changed for the better as the group arrived, surrounded by lots of activities unique to the Championships, although the majority of the crowd were prepared for the usual Irish weather in wellies and raincoats.

Overall students enjoyed visiting the stalls, sampling the food and collecting freebies! For most students however, it seemed that the themepark was the best feature.

It was clear that Mount Mercy students made an impact on the day as several girls made an appearance on the RTE Six One News.
