Castlewellan Show continues to be a jewel in the crown of local agriculture, attracting thousands of exhibitors and spectators from the island of Ireland and further afield.
Saturday’s 48th annual show was no exception, with visitors impressed by the spacious and idyllic forest park setting, and the action-packed itinerary which offered an array of activities and attractions for all ages.
Show secretary Jackie Fitzpatrick was delighted with the success of the one-day show. “The show is going from strength-to-strength, and entries this year are on a par with previous shows. Agriculture remains at the core of the event, with more than 4,000 entries catalogued in the equine, cattle, sheep, goat, pig and poultry classes.
“We had a few showers throughout the day, but the crowds have been pouring into the showgrounds from early morning, and everyone is in good spirits and enjoying the day out.”
