O'Connor 151-C-12441, Harpurs Lane Portlaoise, 19-09-2018
The National Ploughing Championships was held again near Tullamore. One of the biggest events in Ireland, on this day the passage of the remains of a hurricane over the counrty during the morning led to very high winds, and as a result of damage to the stalls the exhibition areas were not opened. The weather arrived later than expected, and after coaches had set out, leading to a lot of issues on site. As a result, many coaches headed home during the early afternoon.
Heading for Co Cork, this O'Connor Volvo B8R is seen passing through Portlaoise from the abandoned Ploughing Championships. It has been owned since new.
