Waterford Company Revels As Ploughing Championships Returns

An attendance of 277,000 at this year’s National Ploughing Championships will have a positive knock-on impact for all the small businesses who were attending the Local Enterprise Village last week.  The Local Enterprise Village, an initiative of the Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) in local authorities across the country, saw over 30 small businesses from LEOs given the opportunity to showcase their products and services to the massive crowds that visited Ratheniska in County Laois last week.

Waterford company, Mac Safety Signs from Local Enterprise Office Waterford, were one of over 30 Local Enterprise Office clients from across the country who exhibited in the Local Enterprise Village at this year’s National Ploughing Championships in Laois last week as Europe’s largest event returned for the first time since 2019.

MAC Safety Signs, with over 13 years' of industry experience, use state-of-the-art technology to produce high-quality and cost-effective signage for traders and the general public throughout Ireland. They are dedicated to delivering a sustainable service by producing steel signage which is more durable than any plastic options and is easily recycled after its service.

Anne McGuire of MAC Safety Signs felt the Ploughing Championships were a major success, "The Championships were a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our products and services to the large  number of visitors that Ploughing attracts. The LEO Village was the perfect location to network, meet potential customers and generate leads".

A host of well-known faces dropped into the Local Enterprise Village across the three days including An Tanaiste, Leo Varadkar, US Ambassador to Ireland, Claire Cronin, Minister of State Damien English, Newstalk’s former Dragon, Bobby Kerr and RTE’s Anne Cassin.
