A poem for the ploughing
Visitors to the Ploughing Championship will have a new challenge this year - to select their favourite farming poem. The Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin has launched 'A Poem for the Ploughing' to find out what verses are the most evocative of life on the land.
People all over the country are being invited to submit their top choice of poem which captures the wonders of country life, says Bishop Denis Nulty.
The top poems nominated to email@example.com by September 9 will be put on display and a winner will be announced in the Kildare and Leighlin tent.
