Claremorris Agricultural Show
Speaking ahead of the event, That’s Farming editor, Catherina Cunnane said:
“We are delighted to partner with our sister company, Corrib Oil, for Claremorris Agricultural Show’s hotly-anticipated return following a three-year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”
“Following the pandemic’s crippling impact, it is important that the public row in behind the event and give their support to what is one of the West of Ireland’s best-attended one-day agricultural shows. After all, this show is the heartbeat of Claremorris and everything that it encompasses.”
“That’s Farming will officiate as a media partner for the event and share updates – photos and videos – via our Facebook page (username: thatsfarming) and Snapchat (@thatsfarming.com).”
“We eagerly await our return to the show circuit where we will meet and capture the views of members of the organising committee, exhibitors, and attendees alike,” Cunnane concluded.
