Despite the National Ploughing Championships nearly being knocked out by Storm Ali, Mr. McNally's Ag. Science group just about managed to get a nice day out in Tullamore. A very comprehensive photo album was captured and that will certainly come in very handy come project time. The pick of the pics however is the one showing President Michael D. Higgins enjoying a moment in the company of Mr. McNally and Mr. Boyle. Mr. Boyle reckons that Michael D. isn't as tall as he looks on TV. Overall, the trip to the Ploughing Championships was an enjoyable and productive day.
