Agricultural Shows or Country Shows during Summer

Noticed that there were some questions on the topic of Agricultural or Country Shows in Ireland throughout the summer - mainly in July and August.

From The Irish Independent:

No need to apologise Uasal. Not only had you already mentioned the thread and linked to it, but this thread is potentially far more useful.

An article here on the annual Horse Fair and Festival in Muff, (near Kingscourt) Co Cavan, which took place yesterday. It's been around since 1608:

And, an article from The Wall Street Journal - of all places - on a visit to the 2010 Festival:

Happening today is The Tullamore (Co Offaly) Livestock Show, complete with sheep shearing, sheepdog trials, all kinds of livestock, plus crafts, local food, trade stands galore and a demonstration by celebrity chef, Neven Maguire.

Moynalty is one of the best shows in the country for vintage and steam enthusiasts. It is a pity that it is only on for one day each year because it draws a great crowd.

Moynalty village is hottly tipped for Irelands Tidy Towns competition this year, it looks fantastic.
