Council of Europe attends National Ploughing

“Officials from the Council of Europe and Ireland’s Presidency of the Committee of Ministers will take part in Ireland’s National Ploughing Championships from 20-22 September.

Held annually, the National Ploughing Championships is amongst Europe’s largest outdoor events, with approximately 300,000 visitors gathering in Ratheniska this week to view more than a thousand exhibitions and celebrate rural Ireland. As the country’s largest gathering, the Ploughing Championships is an opportunity to engage with Ireland’s local communities and highlight the role the Council of Europe plays in supporting democracy, human rights and the rule of law across the continent. “

I’ve attached two possible photos for this, but the CoE Comms team on the ground may have an alternative photo.

We’ve also drafted a suggested tweet the CoE could post (of course please edit as you see fit):

The @Coe is @NPAIE this week, joining 300,000 visitors at one of Europe’s largest annual gatherings 🚜 A great chance to connect with rural communities, celebrate European culture, & discuss the work of the Council and the Irish Presidency! #Ploughing2022 #CoEPresIRL
