A case of here's looking at you kid for tractor winner
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).
