THOUSANDS descended on Newbridge House in Donabate over the weekend for the second annual Flavours of Fingal County Show which showcased the best in the county's agriculture and food production while delivering a whole lot of fun at the same time.
The annual Flavours of Fingal County Show returned for its second year and promised to combine the sights and sounds of a traditional agricultural show with an unforgettable food and family fun experience.
The two-day event took place at Newbridge House and Farm in Donabate on Saturday, September 14, and Sunday, September 15, and was organised by Fingal County Council in association with Fingal Farmers, Fingal Tourism, and Newbridge House and Farm.
The Flavours of Fingal County Show proved to be an unmissable experience celebrating Irish breeding and locally produced food from renowned producers.
The county show was packed with a huge range of activities for all the family from pet shows to arts and crafts, cooking exhibitions and bake-offs and all the fun of a country fair.
At the centre of events were the livestock shows where some of the best-groomed cattle in the county competed for those prized rosettes.
There were sheepdog trials and a traditional blacksmith showed off his skills in the second year of what has quickly become one of the county's largest and most popular events.
