Sunshine was the order of the day for the final day of Ploughing 2023 in Ratheniska, Co Laois.
Some 62,500 attended day three of Europe's largest outdoor event, bringing the total attendance across the three days to 200,550.
This is back just over 75,000 on last year's attendance of 277,000, mostly due to the wet weather on Tuesday and Wednesday.
