'It's a very different scene to X-Factor' - Louis Walsh arrives at the Ploughing Championships in a helicopter
Louis Walsh and Vogue Williams arrived at the Ploughing Championships in style via helicopter - avoiding the tail back and traffic.
While it may have sounded like quite a glamorous way to get to Screggan for the 86th Ploughing championships Walsh insisted that he was not a fish out of water.
"I am from a small village in Mayo and we had turf, hay and all that stuff," Louis said. "It's a little bit of going back to my roots. Yesterday I was in Istanbul doing the X Factor Judge's Houses and it's a very different scene to that."
Walsh said he hadn't brought any wellington boots as he didn't think there was any need. "The sun is shining and it's a great day".

Meanwhile Vogue Williams dismissed the individual behind 'RTE Secret Producer' Twitter account as "just some loser".
The anonymous twitter account has been severely criticising the broadcaster’s culture.
It recently wrote dismissively about Vogue William's documentaries.
The user said that occasionally RTE will commission Vogue to “come out of her mansion now and then to patronise marginalised”.
