Tullamore Show & FBD National Livestock Show, has today (Monday, September 18th, 2023), confirmed that it will return to the widely popular Butterfield Estate on Sunday, August 11th, 2024.
In a statement to www.thatsfarming.com, Joe Molloy, show chariman, outlined that “we acknowledge rumour had it, we were on the move for 2024 but we can confirm we are not on the move yet”.
“We are delighted to be returning to the Butterfield Estate for next year’s show”.
Tullamore Show has been exploring several sites for the future and with the success of our event and the requirements needed for a suitable site, it will continue in its exploration.
2023 proved to be a very difficult year on the showing circuit due to unsettled weather conditions with some shows having to be cancelled or postponed.

However, Tullamore Show & FBD National Livestock Show believes it “had its best show to date”.
Although spectator numbers were down “very slightly”, the quality and standard of livestock, competitors and trade exhibitors were “exceptional”, the chairman noted.
“Each year we endeavour to have new events on our programme and 2024 will be no different.”
“We would like to thank the site owners of the Butterfield Estate, Anne Marie Butterfield, and Stephen McQuade.”
“We are delighted to have the continuous support from the community and the car park landowners in returning to Butterfield Estate in Blueball, Co Offaly on Sunday, August 11th, 2024,” the spokesperson added.
