Ballycastle & District Horse Ploughing Society hold their annual Horse Ploughing Match and Heavy Horse Show on St Patrick’s Day. This is one of the oldest surviving annual competitions in the whole of Ireland and was formed over 130 years ago.

There is huge support from the local ploughmen, society members and donations from local businesses to ensure this local event continues to take place.

Visitors who have never experienced horse ploughing, or those who may wish to recall their youthful days can also step into the handles to plough a furrow under the watchful eye of the Chairman! An experience not to be missed!
