Torrential rain hasn't deterred Offaly people who have turned out in droves for the third and final day of the National Ploughing Championships in neighbouring Laois this Thursday.

Tullamore based tech entrepreneur Loughnan Hooper of dotser reported intense interest in his brand which has a stand in the Innovation Arena at the heart of the championship.

Dotser, which was involved in this year's New Zealand agricultural show, attended a reception last night in honour of the New Zeland Ambassador.
