As repair works continued across the National Ploughing Championships site in Tullamore last week, one Waterford company put the Fianna Fail leader to work.
Hightower Painting received a visit from Micheál Martin along with his party colleagues, Fiona O’Loughlin, TD and Charlie McConalogue TD, Spokesperson on Agriculture.
Keith McGrory of Hightower Painting spotted the opportunity to put a paintbrush in the Cork leader's hands, producing a memorable photograph.
In the end, the tent was good as new as Hightower welcomed many of the 240,000 people that attended the event over the course of the weather-hit week.
