Ploughing Championships worth €10m to Athy

Where do these figures come from? I think this is another invention. Anyone going to the ploughing goes to the site. They do not spend time in Athy so it is hard to see how this event is worth anything to Athy except traffic congestion. The money allegedly spent goes to those traders who come from all over the country and are exhibiting at Cardenton, that means very few local businesses.
