Gardaí Release National Ploughing Championship Traffic Plan

This year's event runs from the 19th to the 21st of September.

Mobile sat-navs will be of little use when it comes to travelling to Laois for the National Ploughing Championships this year.

Gardaí say traffic will be directed around and in to the site through colour coded signs.

It's the second year running that the event is being hosted in Ratheniska, with around 300,000 people expected to attend over the three days.

Six routes have been highlighted depending on the direction of travel towards the Laois village, those routes are colour coded and detailed here.

Their interactive map also includes parking sites and emergency meeting points.
