Tullamore Show to become a two-day event?

Friday, 15th December, 2017 5:05pm

After a record-breaking year with income passing the €1 million barrier, Tullamore Show organisers say they are not ruling out the possibility of a two-day event.

Speaking after it was revealed at the AGM that the Tullamore Show and AIB National Livestock Show generated just over €1 million, Secretary Freda Kinnarney described the 2017 event as the one of the best shows ever.
She said trade stands were completely booked up and “the standard and number of exhibitors were phenomenal.” With the Charolais Society's involvement this year, “four of the national breeds had their national shows incorporated into our programme,” she explained.
Freda believes the local involvement has been “priceless” and has made the show such a success.
“The level of volunteerism has made Tullamore Show,” she remarked, adding, “they know no bounds.”
While the level of income generated is increasing so too are the costs, Freda told the Offaly Independent.
The show has grown into Ireland’s largest one-day agricultural show offering over 1,000 competitions and a €175,000 prize fund.
