Anyone looking at showing at this year's Tullamore Show must have their entry in online by tomorrow, Wednesday, July 10.

The country's biggest one-day agricultural show takes place on Sunday, August 11 and potential competitors have until tomorrow to get their entries in online.

The show has a total prize fund of €175,000 and attracts a crowd of around 65,000 people on the day.

The full array of categories include cattle, sheep, horses, dogs, horticulture and farm produce, cookery and food, crafts and needlework and poultry.

The Commercial Cattle section is a major element within the Tullamore Show and FBD National Livestock Show and has grown from strength to strength with a prize fund of €20,000 this year.

This year, the Junior and Senior finals of the All Ireland Hunt Chase will be hosted at the Show This event, which was previously held in the RDS Horse Show, will provide some great entertainment, as teams of riders complete a difficult course, against the clock and at the one time.
