Well if you were relying on the urban farmers and media from Dublin you would go no where. I had to look for a large puddle to take a photo. Best day out all year. No micky mouse cookery shows selling over priced lettuce and rocket.
Very well organised people on gates or stewarding were excellent well done to all.
Highlights: Automatic milking set up.
Livestock pity no chickens or goats on display. Horse ploughing (hard work that)
machinery big ones and small ones.
Toys farm machinery was a big hit.
Innovation tent lots of great ideas there.
Inland fisheries had interesting stand.
Chainsaw sculpture.
I should have bought a hurley everyone seemed to have one.
Bet Leo wished he was Joe canning he was mobbed and good humoured all day taking selfies and shaking hands. Leo walked 100 metres and then got into his fleet of 4X4 to drive around if he had not time to meet and greet he should have stayed away. course that would not suit the image he wants to present. willies never even got dirty.
Liked the Big pink tractor one off special.
Hope to win either two wheeled trailer, Big trailer of Turf, heifer or Pig sensible prizes for lad from country no holidays in Ibiza here. Lots of loos available and food for eating not looking at. Vintage display was new and really good, I must put up a pic to see if you can guess what something is, Not in a million years would I have got it. Great day out far better than Bloom. Most expensive machine 250K something to do with silage. Oh should have said bought a farm.
Polydome had excellent poly tunnel for sale 14X24 with sliding door 2500E you could also but Hydroponic set up for 250E if only I had money I would have taken it there and then, If you have never been treat yourself you wont be disappointed. Walked 11K measure distance with GPS watch. Most disappointing thing I didn't have enough time to see it all.

It was in Offaly, which is basically a peat bog. What a place to pick.

Sounds like a good day out Greengage. Once visited the Shire Horse Centre in Devon. Really impressive, seeing all the kit, ploughing demonstration, parade of mares and foals, beautiful, restored wagons.

No sound proofed, air conditioned, centrally heated, surround sound, computerised road wreckers for those boys.

And thankfully Wexford is even further away from puns like that.

Is it just me or did I hear some of those with a Scottish accent when I read them out?

That'll be the Ulster Scots! If you are from forn parts and are having problems with any of those words, I strongly suggest you don't enter into a conversation with a Fermanagh farmer. It was from my friends farmer husband that I learned the wonderful word - sheugh (Dave, when he feels like living dangerously, calls me his 'little shuck bucket' Rolling Eyes ). Two other words he (friend's husband) uses are cuttee and yoke.

So, to bring this back on topic (sort of) a phrase he might use would be ' yon cuttee gave me a han' out when the yoke fell in the sheugh.' When he is talking to another farmer he might as well be talking Swahili. Shocked

"Wan" - better as "looka yon wan"
"Yocks" - can also refer to the kind of twin-cam cars driven by young men of little wit - work out the etymology of that one yourselves

We do have a wile successful young wans' arts festival called "Wainfest"
Some of the phrases/expressions Greengage has included come from Derry in which case it would be worth including "bout ye" as a greeting (how's about you).
In a pastry shop in Istanbul, discussing with C which items to buy. The assistant heard us talking, smiled and greeted us "Bout ye! Waddy ya want?" Seems he had lived in Derry for a while.
