In this news article on www.thatsfarming.com, a spokesperson for the 69th annual Clonaslee Livestock and Produce Show previews this Sunday’s event.
The Clonaslee 2023 Show promises to be another great family day out on Sunday next, September 10th from 11 am.
Celebrating agriculture, livestock, produce and a little bit of culture and tradition, the Clonaslee Livestock and Produce Show is one of the season’s premier agricultural shows of its kind, now in its 69th year.
New to the show this year is the Anthony Mahers’ Agri All-Ireland Championship – Best heifer or bullock of any age or breed with a prize fund of €1,500.
Also, the All-Ireland Belgian Blue Junior Bull returns and is amongst a great selection of commercial and pedigree cattle competitions, with classes for Charolais, Simmental, Aberdeen Angus, Hereford, and Belgian Blue.
We will also play host to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine’s and Irish Shows Association’s Breeder’s Choice Continental 4 or 5-star breeding heifer, which boasts a €750 prize money pot.
In addition, we will have classes for horses, ponies, donkeys, sheep, poultry, and dogs, among others.
As usual, there will be a great level of competition across a wide range of produce indoors in areas such as agricultural produce, cookery, flowers, crafts, art, and photography.
Look out for the new section within crafts supporting the environment in our sustainability/climate action classes.
Music on the day is from Rock on Paddy and Aishling Rafferty which will keep the place hopping, while there will be bouncing castles, face painting, balloon modelling and much more for the kids.
Meanwhile, the Gain Dog All-Ireland Final is still a favourite and of course, our local dog show is always a big attraction and entries for this can be taken on the day from 2 pm.
We are looking forward to a great turnout in the vintage section with prizes in a number of categories up for grabs.
The Clonaslee Show has gone from strength to strength from its inception.
With children going free and adults only €10, the Clonaslee Show is a great option for your Sunday afternoon.
