The 180th annual Ballinasloe Horse & Agricultural Show will take place this Sunday, September 22nd. The Ballinasloe Showgrounds will host the event, with action starting at 11 am and continuing throughout the day.
The event will feature a range of classes and finals featuring cattle, horses, sheep, dogs, poultry, etc.
A Champion Heifer/Bullock and a Champion Calf will be named. This year will see an overall winner crowned. The Champion Beast of the Show will also be announced.
This year the organisers are delighted to confirm that there is a new sponsor for the Cattle Section, namely Ballinasloe Mart.
All the Horse Sections will have classes for in-hand and ridden horses and ponies. Connemara two and three-year-old fillies and mares will also be judged on the day.
The All-Ireland Donkey Championship final will be held alongside the All-Ireland Irish Draught Colt & Filly Foal Championship finals.
The Donkey Derby will return once more this year and this is always a popular fun event.
The Dog Show will take place in a new large grass area reflecting the excellent entries and large crowds it always attracts.
There will also be Sheep and Poultry Sections – and much more. There is free parking at the Fairgreen for Sunday’s Horse & Agricultural Show.
