Monday, August 7
Admission €15 (Primary school children go free)
On August Bank Holiday Monday 7th, Bonniconlon Agricultural & Gymkhana Show takes place, boasting a prize fund of up to €65,000.
Bonniconlon is a quintessential rural village on the outskirts of Ballina – a hospitable locality which opens its doors to over 30,000 people each year for the one-day show event.
Famed for the Bank Holiday showcase, members of each annual show committee have worked tirelessly to develop and expand its award-winning programme which since 2008, is held on 200 acres of specially-developed showgrounds. The show has been running since 1949.
With free parking, and free buses from parks to show, Bonniconlon Agricultural Show & Gymkhana, has a jam-packed programme and prides itself on offering something of interest to young and old.
The Show is more than just an exhibition of livestock, farm produce, trade stands and jumping – it is a family orientated event which coincides with the August holiday period to welcome visitors and the diaspora – and in doing so, has become a calendar staple throughout the west of Ireland and beyond.
