WATCH: Storm Ali wrecked some tents at the Ploughing Championships today

They'll rebuild before Thursday.

The Ploughing Championships were cancelled on Wednesday due to safety hazards caused by Storm Ali.

While Thursday was originally scheduled to be the final day, it has now been confirmed that the event will add an extra day on Friday to make up for Wednesday.

It's not as simple for stall and marquee owners at the event to simply show up tomorrow and be business as usual.

Storm Ali has wreaked havoc on the venue and caused a hell of a lot of damage to a lot of marquees, meaning mounds of work will be necessary to have them ready for business on Thursday and Friday.

Agri-Lloyd Ireland are currently working hard to repair the damage from Ali and get their stand and marquee ready for the two days ahead, but they've a lot of work ahead of them.

At the time of writing, teams of people are still at the site working hard to get it ready for Thursday.

We wish them all the best.
