Newry & Armagh DUP Assemblyman and Stormont Agriculture Chairman William Irwin MLA has hailed the success of the 2015 Balmoral show.
Mr Irwin said the event show cased everything that is “great” about Northern Ireland agriculture.
He stated: “The organisers and exhibitors deserve huge credit for what was an amazing show and the numbers of visitors attending this year has been tremendous.
“We have a unique offering here in Northern Ireland in terms of our agri-food industry and there were scores of stalls which demonstrated the diversity and sheer quality of our food produce.
“It is vital that our producers are supported in their efforts to maximise the potential of their products both at home and abroad.”
Meanwhile, Diane Dodds MEP has praised the organisers of the show for an outstanding showcase of high-quality local agricultural produce and the wider benefits of the agri-food sector, after offering a presence with her stand at the new site for the third year in succession.
