Making full use of the Meade Potato Company store which is being transformed for the Hoedown in Lobinstown that night, local parents committees have organised a fundraiser to be held prior to the Hoedown from 1-4pm on Saturday 20th August; activities include a mini tractor grand prix, free farm & factory tours of Meade Potato Company, a junior barn dance, face painting, a farm machinery display and a magic & puppet show suitable for all ages. All of these are included in the admission price of €5 per person, with children going free and all proceeds going to fund local schools. Also on offer on the day will be penalty shootouts, sponge throws and pony rides. From racing around a custom built course on toy tractors to seeing the field to fork journey of the spud at the Meade Farm, to enjoying a magic and puppet show in the Hoedown barn, there are activities to cater for all ages and interests on the day.

Clonmellon is celebrating its roots as the first place in Ireland where spuds were grown. While Youghal in Cork has always laid claim to being the first potato plantation in Ireland, evidence now suggests that Sir Walter Raleigh's ancestral home, Killua Castle, in Clonmellon, Westmeath was where the first potatoes were cultivated, before he began larger scale planting at his Youghal farm.
To celebrate this piece of spud history, Clonmellon is holding its first ever Potato Festival on Sunday, 16 August from 2-6pm. There will be colcannon, contests and lots of craic on offer with traditional music, bouncy castles, talent contests, cooking contests, spud peeling contests, a 'foodie' fair, Mr. Tayto, and of course our very own Mr. Rooster Spud and Mr. Rooster Chips.
