This year the General Fund in the amount of €2,500 in prize money was up for grabs, provided by three sponsors; agriculture independent, waterproof, sho, and Glenngorey pumps Ltd.

Inventions in Tullamore, as a rule, stems from the need on farms. The people I met had a contagious enthusiasm in search of the perfect invention. This year the level was significantly higher with strong farm security and labor-saving lamps for inventions that did well. The judges with whom I spoke at the exhibition commented on the professional presentation of the invention, with some of the samples the patent has already been approved and is ready for the market.
