Gardai and the Ploughing Association are appealing for the owner of a wallet, which was found at the site, to come forward.

The appeal was made after a wallet was handed in at the Tulamore site during the cleanup operating that's continuing after the three-day event last week.

The wallet contains a sum of money and according to the Gardai there is a name in the wallet along with a sum of money.

On day two of the Plouging visitor John Howlin lost his wallet and appealed for anyone with information on it to come forward.

John Howlin and his daughter Joanne attended the second day of the Ploughing on Tuesday, but their day out was ruined when the Wexford man discovered his wallet was gone.

It contained €500, his drivers licence, his medical and PPS cards and a number of other valuable belongings.

His daughter Joanne said he drove all the way up from south Wexford. "He asked me to go because I’m guessing he didn’t want to go on his own. Unfortunately like many people his age, he still keeps cash on him. I need to believe there is some honesty out there, especially in the rural community, and that somebody wouldn't have pickpocketed him, and that he just lost it."

Gardai in Tullamore are appealing for anyone with information on the wallet to contact them on 057 9327600.
