Full steam ahead for this year's competition.

The moment of truth is now almost at hand for Ireland’s inventors in the Farm Inventions and Labour Saving Device classes, in this novel, one of a kind competition.
Last year saw the largest number of entries in the National Inventions competition at Tullamore Show since the competition began.
The competition has now progressed to such an extent that the organisers have decided that all judging of inventions will take place on Saturday 10th of August from 10:00am.
Entry Fee: €20
This should ensure that the event runs smoothly.
Some exhibitors will actually have a greater interest in the publicity they will receive rather than the prize money. However, not many will turn up their nose at the €300 first prize and cup in each of the three categories. In addition, there is also an incentive for students to get involved, as the best student exhibit in each of the three categories will win €100.
An officer from the National Patents office in Kilkenny may come along on the Day and talk to exhibitors about how to go about getting a patent. So a simple labour saving device of today might become an invention of tomorrow!
The whole competition would not exist if it were not for the support given by its three sponsors;
• The Farming Independent
• W.R. Shaw, Rosenallis, Co Laois
• Glenngorey Pumps Ltd, Newbridge, Co Kildare.
The start time for judging is listed as 12.00 noon on the show grounds.
