Wexford, and Sinead Dunne (13) from Daredevils Foróige Club in Co. Laois made through to compete in the final of the competition, which will take place at the National Ploughing Championships in Screggan, Tullamore on the 18th-20th of September, 2018. They join Brian Dineen (15) and Lizzie Harrison (14), both from Coachford Foróige Club, who took the two top places in Saturday’s (14th July) competition in Cookery Cottage, Cork City.
At the finals, participants will be further put to the test by baking in front of a live audience in the Aldi marquee.
