TODAY MARKED THE first day of the National Ploughing Championships 2016 and, as usual, it’s proven to be a celebration of all things weird, wonderful and agricultural.
The highlight of day one?
That would have to be tractor football, a newfangled sport that is exactly what it sounds like
Yep, it’s just two tractors knocking a football back and forth.
This afternoon, Laois squared off against Offaly in a game of tractor football and, as you can tell, it was a rather thrilling fixture.
Move over, Diarmuid Connolly, wha’?
Among those playing? Marty Morrissey.
But of course.
Marty ended up scoring a hat trick and, in doing so, estbalished himself as one of Ireland’s most exciting young tractor footballers
And now people around the country are utterly intrigued
Petition for a Tractor Football All-Ireland, tbh
