All-Ireland Win for Castlelyons

Hot on the heels of the success of Coolagown in the Tidy Towns and European Entente Florale competition the parish has again come up with a major winner. The Kent family from Abbeylands has just won the All-Ireland National Farmyard award in the equine section. This competition, which is featured weekly in the Irish Farmers Journal, is judged on tidiness, health and safety ,general appearance, environment and recycling. The judging took place last July when adjudicators from Teagasc, The Farmers Journal and the competition sponsors – FBD insurance toured the country visiting all of the competition entrants before whittling down the number and eventually deciding on the winners. The competition had several categories including dairy ,equine, pigs and poultry, livestock and tillage and the winners were announced at the recent National Ploughing Championships in Athy. Congratulations to Edmund, Rita and family on their success.
