Marown Ploughing Match 2016 – results & photos


Despite the overcast conditions not lifting during the day, those that attended this year’s Marown Royal Ploughing Match at Ballamillaghyn had a most enjoyable day. Spells of drizzle in the morning did clear but the sun never really got to shine.

Numbers were down this year with only one horse team entered which was mainly due to the Horse Trams still running on Douglas Promenade and several of the tractor ploughmen otherwise engaged.

The Society is indebted to Mrs Hezlett and everyone at Ballamillaghyn for the excellent site and their hospitality. Thanks also go to the judges Philip Caley, Allan Craine and Robbie Corkish.
