Day one of the National Ploughing Championships is continuing in Laois this afternoon.

Thousands have travelled to Ratheniska for Europe's largest outdoor event.

It's very wet down there today, but it hasn't dampened the spirits of those trudging through the muck.

Its the 92nd ploughing championship to take place and will continue until Thursday September 21

Alan O'Reilly from Carlow Weather says tomorrow will be a different story weather-wise:

"The good news is if your coming here tomorrow, sunny spells and just the odd shower."

"It will pick up, it will get better, we do have more we and windy weather ahead tonight but it will pick up by sunrise tomorrow."
