The Stylish Silage Competition was first introduced in 2017 as part of the An Tóstal Festival. Since then, the competition has become bigger and better than ever. The 2018 competition had an explosive start and was a huge success harnessing local creativity and boosting the local economy. The Stylish Silage Competition encourages people to design and decorate silage bales. There were over 80 entries in the competition in 2018.
Due to the huge amount of entries last year, there will be four categories this year
- (1) Family
- (2) Community/Club
- (3) Commercial
- (4) The Funniest or The Most Topical or The Most Outrageous

We would like to thank Enda Horan for supplying bales for those who didn't have any for the Stylish Silage competition.
We would also like to thank David Gilmartin for wrapping the bales for us,
Without the help of all the local farmers, we would not have been able to have such a successful competition.
