Glenamaddy Show makes a welcome return

‘It’s wonderful to be back!’

The Glenamaddy District Ploughing and Agricultural Show will make a very welcome return to Glenamaddy Equestrian Centre on Sunday, October 2nd following two years of Covid-19 lockdowns.

Speaking at the official launch of the show on Friday last at the impressive County Galway venue, show chairperson Bernie Murray said it was wonderful to be back organising the popular event.

“I’d like to welcome you all here this evening to the Glenamaddy District Ploughing and Agricultural Show launch,” she said.

  “On behalf of myself and my fellow committee members, team leaders and our entire team of volunteers, thank you for making the effort in coming tonight.

“It’s wonderful to be back organising the show again after two years of lockdown due to Covid-19. It was a very hard time for everyone not being able to leave the house to attend shows and functions”.

In addition to all those who make the event possible, Bernie Murray paid a special tribute to the show’s loyal sponsors.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful sponsors. This year we have two main sponsors, The Comer Group and Declan Lohan Group,” she said.

  “I would like to sincerely thank Luke and Brian Comer for the generous ongoing support. And our second main sponsor, who we are delighted to welcome on board this year, is Declan Lohan, originally from Ballyhard and now living in London. His company is the Declan Lohan Group”.

The chairperson also thanked the show’s partner sponsors, Ward and Burke Construction Ltd.

“Also, Glenamaddy and St. Jarlath’s Credit Union, who have now amalgamated as one, have supported the development and progression of our show since we first started back in 2014. We wish them every success and look forward to continuing our working relationship with them,” she added.

Gold, silver, platinum, and bronze level sponsors were also acknowledged for their ongoing support.

“We are hugely appreciative and will never take your sponsorship for granted,” Bernie said.

Bernie Murray also wished Glenamaddy Players the very best ahead of their 50th anniversary celebrations last weekend and the launch of the Confined Drama Finals on Saturday night last.

Concluding, she said: “Our show is on Sunday, October 2nd. No better way to spend a day than at the Glenamaddy Show. See you all there!”
