Swinford Agricultural Show
The 29th Swinford Agricultural Show will be held on Saturday 19th August 2017. We are hosting several All Ireland Championship i.e. National Young Stockperson, Suckler Heifer Championship, Female/Male Bantam Chicken, Hogget Ewe championship, along with our regular Cattle, Horse, Sheep, Dogs, Goats, Donkey and Poultry Sections. We have a full range of competitions scheduled for the day in the various Home Industries section (Junior and Senior Sections) – Cookery, Arts & Crafts, Fruit & Veg., Photography, Flowers, Farm Produce. Other highlights include Craft Village, Bonny Baby, Pets Corner, Fancy Dress, Trade Stands and a host of musical entertainment on the day. We now have the space to develop the show even further in 2017, making it a show for everybody to enjoy and a great day out. Agriculture is a fairly unique industry in so far as everyone in society, whether urban and rural, has a vested interest is its continued wellbeing.
The show success is mainly dependent on local fund-raising and on the generosity of our valued sponsors. If you would like to financially support the show (any amount small or large) please contact Gerard (Show Secretary) @ 087 7716028 or email firstname.lastname@example.org A full list of sponsors will be published in the 2017 Show Schedule. Sponsors are also listed on our Website, facebook and on Posters on the Showground, the sponsors names are read out on the show day along with a word of thanks published in local newspapers following the show.
