Ploughing finals set for Clooncullane

The 23rd Roscommon Ploughing Championships will be held on the farm of Peter Kelly in the townland of Clooncullane near Tulsk on Sunday, April 2nd. This site is situated at Simpsons Cross approximately 4km from Tulsk village and 6km from Strokestown.

  A meeting of Roscommon Ploughing will take place in Devine’s Lounge in Clashganny, Tulsk at 9 pm next Wednesday (March 1st). All local groups and businesses are invited to attend this meeting.

  In the year 2000 Mr. Peter Kelly provided the Association with an excellent site on the Castleplunkett road, which many people have fond memories of. This year, he has come up trumps again with another excellent site. The site has ample car parking as well as an area for trade stands.

  Meanwhile, the Roscommon Novice Ploughing will take place on Saturday, March 18th on the lands of John Hanly in Kilbegnet.

  Anyone wishing to be the main sponsor for this year’s Roscommon Ploughing Championships or having a trade stand on April 3rd should contact Jim on 087-2755738 or Ger on 086-4113617.
