Come & meet us at our stand at the ploughing in Laois!19 Sep 2022
We’re going ploughing – come & see the new John Deere tractor we’re raffling! Join us at the National & World Ploughing Championships this week in Ratheniska Co. Laois this week where we’ll be raising awareness for our Win A New John Deere fundraiser and also highlighting the work of Upperchurch Drombane GAA club in general. The Ploughing Championships take place from Tuesday 20th to Thursday 22nd September 2022.
Call into our stand at Block 3 Row 29 Stand 488 and see the shiny new tractor we are raffling and talk to members of the club. There will also be plenty of competitions over the 3 days and the opportunity to purchase membership packages.

It’s been a busy period for the club with our senior hurlers & footballers still involved in the championship (having reached the quarter finals & semi finals respectively). Add to this, our junior A hurling team winning the mid title for the first time in 26 years while the under 19B hurlers claimed the mid title at their grade a few weeks back also. 2022 is shaping up to be one of the most successful years in the clubs history and the income generated from our Win A New John Deere fundraiser will go towards purchasing land to allow us to keep catering for all these teams and more including the juvenile section and the Slieve Felim Rapparees camozie & ladies football teams.
The club has also been out and about recently at other events including the Tullamore Show, Garth Brooks concerts in Dublin and we also had a stall at the Semple Field Day in Semple Stadium Thurles where funds were being raised for the very worthwhile cause of North & South Tipperary Hospice.
So if you’re at the ploughing championship call into our stand and don’t forget you can buy tickets for our fundraiser here on www.winanewjohndeere.ie or locally from players, committee members or many local parishioners. And anyone who purchases a ticket before September 30th will be included in a special bonus draw for €1,000. And still be in with a chance of winning the John Deere 6140M or €100,000 in cash in the main draw in March.
