#PLOUGHING2017 | Watch incredible drone footage of Tullamore site coming together

The National Ploughing Championships will kick off its three-day stint in Tullamore, County Offaly next Tuesday - September 19.

Over 350 competitors from every county in Ireland will compete in the actual ploughing at the event at Screggan.

Preparations for the largest outdoor event in Europe began months ago to ensure the site was ready for the tens of thousands of visitors over the three days.

Take a look at the work being done to bring this event together.
