Plough­ing sea­son gets un­der­way in Abbey­dor­ney

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

THE first of the win­ter’s big plough­ing matches was sig­nalled in Lis­towel on Fri­day where Buck­ley Agri pre­sented the Abbey­dor­ney Plough­ing So­ci­ety with their main spon­sor­ship for the event, which is tak­ing place on Sun­day next, Oc­to­ber 15 from 12noon.

Abbey­dor­ney Plough­ing Chair­man Tommy McCarthy said the so­ci­ety was de­lighted with the spon­sor­ship and are look­ing for­ward to a big day of it on Cor­ri­dan’s farm in Ballysheen. Abbey­dor­ney na­tive Bren­dan Glavin will be home from York­shire with his Cly­des­dales, and Delia Slat­tery will be home all the way from Port­land, Ore­gon, as spe­cial guest.

Delia is a daugh­ter of the late, much-loved Joe Slat­tery, for­mer Chair­man of the Plough­ing So­ci­ety (from 1974 - 2016) who passed on to his eter­nal re­ward ex­actly a year ago.

A most ap­pro­pri­ate dressed man and woman com­pe­ti­tion will also be held - with watches spon­sored Billy Nolans; clean­ing equip­ment spon­sored by Mossie Leahy, agent for Chem­i­cal Ware­house; and food ham­pers from Gar­vey’s Su­pervalu, Tralee, amid the great prizes.

A gate prize of €100 spon­sored by King­dom In­stal­la­tions, Abbey­dor­ney, will also be up for grabs help­ing to en­sure a most ex­cit­ing day for all com­ers, weather per­mit­ting of course.
