Galmere Food Visits the National Ploughing Awards

It was a beautiful weekend in Co. Carlow, with clear blue skies and an abundance of sunshine for the Irish Ploughing Awards, 2019. As firm staple in rural Ireland, and an epicentre of passionate Irish farmers and ploughing enthusiasts alike, we were delighted attend with our clients, Lidl.

With over 110,000 visitors passing through, and enjoying all Irish Ploughing had to offer, we had the opportunity to hand out over 10,000 tasting samples of Deluxe Seafood Chowder to a welcoming hungry audience. To our delight, we found many existing fans of our chowder amongst the crowds, and, by the end of the weekend we had amassed a whole crowd of new fans too.

The National Ploughing Championships, or, Comórtas Náisiúnta Treabhdóireachta, is an outdoor agricultural show in Ireland incorporating a ploughing contest.

A much loved Irish Annual event, held every September, it draws over 1,700 exhibitors each year, and upon our visit in 2019 welcomes over 297,000 over the course of the weekend! If you’d like to read more about the National Ploughing Championships, you can find more information at

The National Ploughing Championship Get Underway in Co. Carlow

It was a highly enjoyable three days over all, and it was a wonderful experience to be amidst our new and existing customers who enjoyed our samples of award winning chowder!

This was all possible thanks to Catapult Marketing and especially their team who helped us serve 10,000 of samples over the three exceptionally busy days!

And, to add to the fun, Galmere’s own Andrew Keegan of our Supply Team,  was requested to be interviewed by KCLR Radio and proved a hit with the crowds!

We would also like to thank Lidl, for the wonderful opportunity to partake in the festivities over the weekend.
