Since the early 1930's The National Ploughing Championships have occupied a special place in the heart of rural Irish life, when people gather from every corner of the country to show off their skills and engage in sport, fun and business. Here, for the first time, the magic of the Ploughing is captured in word and image. This beautiful book also provides a record of a landscape that may bear resemblance to that of the 1930's but, in important ways - of family, community and the nod and wink of a business deal- is little changed. A gift, a keepsake, A Ploughing People is a unique celebration of the best of Irish life.
