We have another interesting clip relating to ploughing in Northern Ireland, this time we meet Elizabeth from Ballyclare who enjoys ploughing as a past-time but also competes, despite having a full-time job in an office.
She says: “I love ploughing, I get a lot of enjoyment out of it. I started ploughing about two years ago and the first match that I went to was Ballyboley and I did quite well in it.”
She adds: “When I was at school I had more time to plough but now that I have an office job it has become much more of a past-time. I plough at weekends and during holidays.”
