Belvedere College - Ploughing Championships 2016

Ploughing Championships 2016

Ploughing Championships 2016

The Home Economics Department and Rhetoric students made their maiden voyage to this year’s National Ploughing Championships 2016 in Tullamore, Co.Offaly. The Home Economics Students were asked to carry research on one of the many Irish Food companies showcased at the event as part of the Leaving Cert Home Economic Syllabus. It was great to see such enthusiasm for the Irish Agri-Food sector. The students were exemplary and they really enjoyed meeting producers and finding out all about the Irish Food industry. It was great to see many famous faces including Mr. Neven Maguire, Kevin Dundon and Martin Shanahan among others at the show. Students from Belvedere College played music at the Jesuit Tent and we even got to take a selfie with the pope! It was a great day out and the students definitely gave it a thumbs up. Let’s hope next year will be as good!    You can view more photos in the "Ploughing Event 2016 Gallery"  here...
