The borough council has agreed on a £5,000 grant to help finance the Mullahead Ploughing Society which is holding its 100th match in February 2015.

The council is also providing help through its officers helping with various displays at the event, having done the same for the Lurgan Agricultural Show and Country Comes to Town in Portadown.

New council member Kyle Savage made the Mullahead £5,000 proposal. This was seconded by Alderman Carla Lockhart, who said the council had helped make all the events an outstanding success through finance and personnel.
