Some top Tullamore tips
Here are some more samples from the innovative entries from this year's Tullamore Show Inventions Competition.
There were all manner and variety of entries, from inventors of all ages which really made this an entertaining and interesting competition.
The calibre of entries was extremely high across the board and demonstrates the resilient and innovative nature of the farming community and beyond. We can only look forward to what next year's competition might bring.
Carol Minogue from Whitegate in Co Clare won third place and the student category in the home, leisure and building category for her shoe rack.
With three carousels, the rack can accommodate 18 pairs of shoes in total. A must for anyone with lots of feet in the house.
O'Reilly Oakstown Concrete, from Trim, Co Meath, had the concrete pre-cast Diesel Defence system (pictured above) entered in the competition.
