The 2018 County Louth Agricultural Show takes place on Sunday June 10 in Bellurgan Park. Now in its 129th year, the County Louth Agricultural Show offers a day of competition, exhibitions, entertainment and fun for all the family.
Bellurgan Park, situated in the scenic Cooley Peninsula, plays host to County Louth’s premier agricultural event and John Wehrly, the Chair of the show’s organising committee said: “I am delighted to be returning to Bellurgan Park. This picturesque agricultural estate is the perfect setting to showcase the best of what rural Ireland has to offer.”
Approximately 4,500 people attended last year’s show and enjoyed a comprehensive programme of competitive events in crafts, culinary, equestrian and livestock. The attendees also visited over 120 trade stands covering the areas of agriculture, home, garden, fashion, forestry, energy, food, travel, property, health and many more.
The programme this year will feature all the regular events and competitions as well as some exciting new additions. The show will also host competitive home industry events for children and those with special needs. Applications are still being accepted across all competitive exhibitions and trade stands are still available.
