Irish Independent - Farming - - PHOTO DIARY -

YOUNG women from home and abroad are set to flock to Tul­lam­ore this week­end to com­pete in the 2018 Clarke Ma­chin­ery Group Queen of the Land Fes­ti­val in Co Of­faly.

Monaghan coun­try singer Marty Mone will en­ter­tain the masses on Fri­day and will no doubt treat the crowd to a ren­di­tion of his smash hit tune ‘Hit the Diff’ in the Palace Nigh­club.

The 30 contestants will be in­ter­viewed by the judg­ing panel on Satur­day which con­sists of IFA pres­i­dent Joe Healy, NPA’s Anna-Maria McHugh and spon­sor Ger­ard Clarke. This will be fol­lowed by a trea­sure hunt and on-stage in­ter­views in the town’s Bridge House Ho­tel.

On Sun­day morn­ing the contestants will at­tend a spe­cial mass in the Church of the As­sump­tion.

The gala ban­quet will take place that night where one of the women will be crowned Queen of the Land and fill the shoes of 2017 Kil­dare Macra mem­ber and med­i­cal stu­dent Emma Birchall who won the prize last year.

If you’re in­ter­ested in a fun-filled week­end and get­ting your glad rags on, tick­ets for the three-day event can be pur­chased at the door of the event each night or on­line at queenofthe­land­fes­ti­
