Grace Kelly, Ballina Agricultural Show’s committee, said: “We always strive to offer a great family day at Ballina Agricultural Show. We really offer something for everyone, whether you are into cooking, floristry arrangements or photography.”
“There are games and entertainment for kids of all ages. We have fantastic prize money in the horse and pony showjumping this year with our headlining Jack Dodd class offering €3,000. The dog show sets off on the green at 12 pm. The cattle, sheep and horse showing will get underway in the morning, and a lovely poultry section will be on display again this year.”
“We are lucky to have such loyal sponsors coming out supporting us every year, as without them, our show would not be possible. And, of course, all the committee members that work tirelessly together to improve the show every year.”
