Coordinator: Sammy Woolmington
In the last three years, we have managed to put on a display in the vintage section of the National Ploughing Match at the invitation of IVS. I have also traveled to a number of shows around the Leinster area. I should point out that I was appointed coordinator from South of Dublin, taking Kildare, Carlow, Wicklow and Wexford to start with.
In the last 3 to 4 years, we had working days with Ferguson tractor and implements. So, this year it was mentioned that we should try and form a club as FOFH Leinster Branch with me as leader and a working day followed with 24 Fergusons in one field with refreshments afterwards.
Today we have 24 members. The club is insured with IVS as we are not covered through FOFH main insurance company. The Club is invited to the national ploughing match in Carlow this year and also to the IVS National Rally on 1st September in Wexford. The Club will put on displays in my local show in Tinahely, Co. Wicklow and Gorey, Co. Wexford in 2019.
