Leitrim has secured a place in the FBD National Farm Skills final after qualifying at the semi-finals at Gurteen Agricultural College in Tipperary on July 7.

15 teams from across the country took part. Each had to perform three tasks: tractor teamwork; farming knowledge and a stock–proof fencing gate hanging task. Six teams were selected to go forward to the national finals.
Congratulations to Fergus O'Rourke, Michael Reynolds and Stephen Dolan from Carrigallen Macra who represented Leitrim and were successful in getting through. The final takes place at Tullamore Show on August 11.
