AS soon as the site opened this morning at the National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore, visitors were streaming through the gates.
In the region of 300,000 people are expected to attend over the three days and the Dundalk Democrat will be bringing you the sights and the sounds from Screggan between now and Thursday.
We would love to hear from local competitors, exhibitors or performers taking part in the annual extravaganza over the next three days.
Let us know where you will be and we will try to catch up with you. Message us on Facebook or Twitter or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are attending this year’s championships, send us a photo via Facebook or Twitter and we’ll include you in our Ploughing Photo Gallery – use the hashtag #Ploughing2017.
