All the big names will be there...

The National Ploughing Championships will take place from September 17-19 in Ballintrane, Fenagh, Carlow.

RTÉ will once again be there over three full days with an action-packed schedule of live programmes, a host of musical performances, live weather bulletins and exclusive events with well-known presenters.

And they've introduced some new additions this year:

The Late Late Toyshow Costume Display: Over the last ten years Ryan has worn some iconic costumes on the Late Late Toyshow and they will be on display for visitors to the RTE stand.

The Sunday Game set: Following a busy GAA Championship season, you’ll have the chance to jump into The Sunday Game set and take a selfie. Upload your snap to social using #rteploughing to be in with the chance to win a GAA county jersey of your choice.

Sustainability Wall: Learn about sustainability at RTÉ and some of their sustainable initiatives.

Present the Weather: Junior visitors will have the opportunity to try their hand at presenting the weather. This year they have included climate change in our autocue script reflecting the importance of sustainability at RTE.
