The National Ploughing Championships return to Co Offaly in September and Local Enterprise Offices across the country are helping small businesses to get Ploughing ready.

The LEO network will have its ‘Local Enterprise Village’ at the championships, Europe’s largest outdoor event, from 18 to 20 September, and will be bringing 30 small businesses and startups to the pavilion, to launch products and services to the thousands of visitors.
