Foot notes

The only footwear that works for the Ploughing is welly boots – that’s one thing the Irish Country Living team has tried and tested every year without fail. Finding a pair that are comfortable and good quality, as well as stylish, can be a challenge. In our opinion, you can’t go far wrong with either the Dubarry Galway Boot (pictured far left), which comes in a slimfit and wide-leg version (€299), or the classic Hunter Original Tall Boot (pictured left) (€110).
