The Ploughing Championships kick off again in Tullamore today. In truth, it's really a crossroads where farmers will be matched in number by punters from towns, villages and cities rediscovering their wellied-roots during a day out in the country.

Wondering about funeral arrangements for your pet? Head to the Ploughing.
