Ploughing Championship 2018

TY, 5th and 6th year students had a fantastic day at the Ploughing Championship


On Tuesday the 18th September, 82 Cluny students from 4th, 5th and 6th year attended the National Ploughing Championships in Screggan Co, Offaly. The students had a fantastic day learning about all things agricultural from identifying breeds of cattle, sheep and pigs they had learned about in class to seeing animals they had never seen before such as alpacas. The students also got to see all different types of machinery used in agricultural activities such as tractors, ploughs, milking machines and combine harvesters to name a few. Other activities the students observed on the day included sheep shearing, pony games, talks about farm safety, sheepdog trials, listening to traditional Irish music and milking a fake cow! The students enjoyed experiencing the rural culture of Ireland and interacting with the farming community who were more than willing to share their expertise and knowledge. They learned a lot by asking the farmers questions and discovering the passion that they had for their animals and business. They realised the importance of the event to the agricultural industry and were amazed by the shear scale of the event. Overall it was a fantastic day for the students allowing them to experience the agricultural industry and appreciate it’s importance to Ireland.
