The Local Enterprise Village will be home to 85 small businesses for the three days of the Championships (September 22nd – 24th), which is Europe’s largest outdoor event.

Local Enterprise Offices in every county are supporting small businesses at the Ploughing, which attracted 279,500 visitors in 2014, generating an estimated €39million in sales.

Kieran Comerford from Carlow Local Enterprise Office, said that the Local Enterprise Village has doubled in size in recent years, explaining: “For small, local businesses looking to expand, The Local Enterprise Village is the ideal gateway to customers across farming communities and rural Ireland. Many of the small businesses being supported by the Local Enterprise Offices will be testing new products and services in September, which in turn, will generate more jobs within those companies in the near future.”

Organised by the National Ploughing Association, the 84th National Ploughing Championships (www.npa.ie) are taking place in Ratheniska, Stradbally in County Laois and further details around the Local Enterprise Village are available from www.localenterprise.ie
