New Sligo product on sale at the National Ploughing Championships

An innovative new product is on sale at the National Ploughing Championships.

The Suip Protector, developed by Suip Manufactoring based in Dromard Co. Sligo, is a device that has been made to secure quad bikes on farms.

Speaking to OceanFM News, Pius McCloat, owner of the company, says they wanted a device that wasn’t electronic.

Although farmers are known for using quad bikes for their versatility, police forces around the world also use them.

Mr McGloat says a number of Gardaí have shown interest in the device and that they carried out extensive research with policing forces in Britain.

While work is still being carried out, the product is for sale at the moment.
