One of the highlights and biggest draws at the National Ploughing Championships in Tullamore was the Tractor Football.

Teams from Laois and Offaly faced off over the three days showing incredible tractor handling skills and entertaining those in attendance. The commentary of All Ireland referee and All Star Michael Duignan enhanced the occasion.

The First Know Heart Failure Tractor Football was also 'Revving Up Heart Failure Awareness at the Ploughing Championships'.

It was held to encourage the farming community to take care of their hearts and as National Ploughing Association felt that many farmers could be accused of looking after their tractors more than their hearts.
