The National Ploughing Championships for 2017 are being held in Screggan, Tullamore, Co. Offaly from and including today until September 21st next.

Travel the Blue Route: If you are travelling from the Southern Ireland, Gardaí are advising all motorists to exit the M8 at Junction 6, (Horse and Jockey, Thurles), and onto Templemore and Roscrea on the N62. In Birr, Co Offally, traffic will join the N52 travelling northbound via the villages of Kilcormac and Blueball and onto the event site at Screggan, in Tullamore.

A video for people travelling from the South can be found HERE.

Patrons arriving at their Ploughing Championships destination using this route will park in the designated BLUE car parks on the left and right hand side, beside the event grounds. Where necessary motorists will be directed by Gardaí and stewards towards the event.

A national traffic plan detailing all routes and parking areas can be found HERE.

Of course if you are looking for a break from driving, Thurles is the ideal location to halt awhile, for a snack or a cup of tea or coffee.
