There was a special treat for horse racing fans on Day 1 of the National Ploughing Championships as Grand National winner Tiger Roll made an appearance.

People queued up to take photographs with the Gordon Elliott-trained horse, a back-to-back winner of the Aintree Grand National.

Tiger Roll has remained in training and will go for a record third Grand National win in a row next April in Liverpool. 

For now, he's enjoying the limelight in Carlow!
