Ploughing 2016

The National Ploughing Championships are being held in  17th-19th September 2019 – Ballintrane , Fenagh , Co. Carlow where over 250,000 consumers will visit a 50 acre exhibition and trade arena.  This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the quality and high standards of goods and services supported by the Local Enterprise Office.

As part of its National Programme the Local Enterprise Offices are hosting a Local Enterprise Village to provide an opportunity for clients to take full advantage of this unique consumer event.  Donegal Local Enterprise Office has 2 stands available for its clients.

Donegal Local Enterprise Office is now inviting clients interested in availing of this stand to complete the attached ‘expression of interest’ form and return to our office by 19th April 2019.  Please note that priority will be given to enterprises manufacturing their own product or offering an innovative service relevant to the audience expected at the show.  Once your expression of interest form has been received it will be considered centrally and successful applicants will be advised by email in early May 2019.

Chosen exhibitors will be expected to attend a client briefing and photography session and will be assigned one of the following dates:
