2017 - Our 27th Annual Show

Show Day morning was overcast and dull but dry. The show grounds opened at 9 am. Shortly after that the exhibitors began to arrive. The committee had everything prepared down to the last detail. Mr. Michael Hughes, (Irish Shows Association National Secretary) arrived early and ever optimistic said "I don't think it will make much". However by noon it was beginning to rain and this continued throughout the day. Michael got it wrong this time!

Galway Bay FM broadcast from the show grounds all day and Wagon Wheel kept the music going in the outdoor arena.

The Show Queen, Ms. Rachel Killilea arrived at the show grounds looking stunning wearing her sash and tiara. She wore a beautiful dress and despite the rain smiled all day. Rachel presided over the presentation of the prizes and in the afternoon selected the dog she would like to take home.

Judges were impressed with the calibre of animals in the pony, horse, cattle and sheep sections. The dog, pets and poultry show were smaller than usual. No doubt the weather impacted on these entries.

In the indoor arena there was an increase in the Flower Section and other indoor sections were similar to other years except for the craft section which was smaller than last year.

The Viewing Gallery in Duffys Equestrian Centre was transformed into a Restaurant for the day and in excess of 150 meals were provided by the catering committee to Judges, Stewards, Committee, Helpers, Guests and Sponsors. Tea, coffee and a selection of home bakes were also on sale in the Viewing Gallery.

Sincere thanks to everyone who turned up despite the weather - our Show Queen, the exhibitors, the helpers, the sponsors, the invited guests and anyone who contributed in even the smallest way to make the show possible. Thanks to Michael Hughes ISA National Secretary, Noel Grealish & Jim Cuddy who took time out to come to the show. Thanks also to the Duffy Family for the use of their facilities for the show.
