Schedules showing all the various classes will be available from our website and online entries will open after our show launch on the 26th April 2017. Make sure to visit the marquee and take a leisurely walk around the exhibition to view the amazing entries. After the success of the Artisan Food Market and cookery demonstration last year we are hoping to repeat this aspect of the Show and plan to run a Food Village area showcasing local artisan and speciality food produce.
Ferdomnach wrote the first part of the book in 807 or 808, for Patrick's heir (comarba) Torbach, abbot of Armagh. The people of medieval Ireland placed a great value on this manuscript.
Equestrian Classes: Again, in the equestrian section, there is a full range of in-hand and ridden classes for ponies and horses including, donkeys, clydesdales and miniatures.
There is also an number of Irish Shows Association Qualifiers for in-hand horses and these are listed in the prize Schedule.
The agri-food and rural focus of the Show remains its central theme and this continues to be the driving force behind its organisation.
However, in addition, every effort is made to cater for all tastes and interests of the thousands of visitors that attend the event each year and the programme is constantly updated to reflect and respond to those interests.
