We were so proud to be involved with the National Ploughing Championships 2013 in Ratheniska. Our members had their crafts on show and were in our tent giving advice and encouragement to women who attended.
We had the ICA boot camp ladies, Breda and Josephine in our tent for the three days that caused quite a stir. We also had the pleasure of having the ICA National President with us for the three days who was an inspiration.
Our programme for the three days were full to the brim and we would like to thank all demonstrators for the hard work and there was a very warm and positive response to them all. We would also like to thank our sponsors for the three days and without you we could not have achieved such a brilliant three days.
The federation would also like to thank all our members that participated and helped out during the event.
Our next federation meeting is on November 24 in Castletown at 8pm.
