Thousands of people are again expected to descend on the 2010 National and European Ploughing Championships in Co Kildare today.
An estimated 66,000 people attended the opening day yesterday - up 20,000 on the same day last year.
However, organisers are forecasting that today's numbers will be down due to the poor weather conditions.
Heavy rain overnight has led to wet and muddy conditions in Cardenton, just outside Athy, where the Ploughing Championships are taking place.
So far this morning the 700 acre site is quieter than yesterday morning with traffic in the area flowing well, but the car parks are beginning to fill.
And it is expected to get busier as the morning progresses with rain set to clear for most of the day.
However, people travelling to the event are advised to allow plenty of time and to bring appropriate clothing.
