An event for all the family to participate in on the day
August 23rd 2013 marks the first All Ireland National Potato Day. A day that is coordinated by Bord Bia, The Irish Farmers Association and the Irish Potato Federation.
To help create awareness for this National promotion, Sam Dennigan & Company, (Sam,s Potatoes) Ireland's largest packer and distributor of potatoes, want to attempt to set a world record by hosting the largest ever potato sack race.
It will involve a crowd participating in hessian potato sacks, simultaneously hopping a distance of 60-80 yards.
This is an event for all the family, young and old, children and adults to get involved in and a team from Sam Dennigan & Company will ensure the smooth running of the event.
