Cancelled

Due to Covid 19/ Coronavirus outbreak.
Scheduled to take place in 2021. Sorry for any inconvenience.
2021 Show in Riverstown on 17th July.
.

The County Sligo Agricultural Show was established in Riverstown in 1994, taking over from the show which always had been held in Sligo town. The main organiser to get it up and running in Riverstown was the late Paddy Kenny who was supported by the local Creamery Committee.
.

In 2001, there was an outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease and as a result the show had to be cancelled. After that, cattle were not allowed at the show until 2009, so and every year since then we have been expanding and rebuilding our classes.

.
There will be something for everybody:
  • Horses
  • Ponies
  • Connemara Ponies
  • Young Stock…
  • Riding Classes
  • Sheep
  • Cattle
  • Poultry
  • Home Industries
  • Dog and Cat Classes.
Many of their classes are qualifiers to other shows in Ireland. 

There are games for the children and not to mention the all important Bonny Baby competition, Little Miss Riverstown and Little Master Riverstown.
Last but not least The Best Dressed Lady of the Show.
Lots of on field entertainment, traders and food.

Sligo, Ireland
