Something for everyone at Ballyforan Fair & Festival

With animals and livestock of all shapes and sizes making their way to Ballyforan this weekend there promises to be something for every member of the family. Tractor pulling, horses, cattle, sheep, poultry and farm produce are just some of this weekend’s attractions.

  For the more adventurous visitors to this year’s fair, the following is on offer on Saturday, 24th and Sunday, 25th: A cross-country hunt in association with the Roscommon Hunt will commence at 1.30 pm on Saturday, followed by the high gate horse jumping at 3 pm. Sheep dog trials will also take place all day.

  Meanwhile on Sunday, Ballyforan/Dysart Gun Club will host their usual clay pigeon shoot from 10 am.

  Clay pigeon shooting will be followed by the dog show which takes place in the afternoon so head along and register your furry friend at 2.30 pm.

  Throughout the weekend there will be lots of free kid’s entertainment and admission to all events except the tractor pulling is free over the weekend. There will be live music in the Green on Sunday and trade stands and stalls on both days.

  Therefore, if you missed the action in Tullamore during the week, Ballyforan is the only place to be this weekend!
