The FTMTA (Farm Tractor and Machinery Trade Association) Grass & Muck event takes place this month - on Thursday, May 17 - at Gurteen College (close to the Tipperary/Offaly border).

The association says that it will be the “flagship event” for Ireland’s farm machinery trade during 2018, describing it as “the largest farm machinery event taking place in the country this year”.

The FTMTA has now released a site map, showing the locations of the various demonstration plots and exhibition areas.
