THERE were lots of happy faces at the National Ploughing Championships but none more so than Elizabeth O'Reilly who was handed the keys to a new €48,000 Case IH farmall tractor she won in an Irish Independent competition.
The competition, which attracted over 16,000 entries, challenged farmers to come up with a new and inventive name for their farm in addition to collecting 10 tokens in the newspaper.
Ms O'Reilly, who owns a 45-acre farm with her husband Christopher in Ballinakill, Enfield, Co Meath, said it was her son Barry (29) who had come up with the title 'Case-A-Blank-A' (Casablanca).
