Daredevil pigs, tug of war and tractor pulling contests are set to entertain the crowds at this year’s Tullow show
A team of daredevil pigs will attempt the impossible at this year's Tullow Agricultural Show when they will bounce around a small obstacle course.
The pigs, a mix of Tamworth, Duroc, Oxford Sandy and Black and Pietrain breeds, will strut their stuff as part of the show's first ever pig agility demonstrations.
Up to 10,000 spectators are expected to turn out for the Carlow county show, celebrating it's 69th birthday, on the vast Coppenagh site on Sunday, Aug 20.
Local rugby hero and farmer Sean O'Brien, aka "The Tullow Tank" will also be on hand to help out with traffic management.
Other top attractions include All-Ireland tug of war competitions, a tractor pulling contest, cattle and sheep showing, vintage machinery display, goat and donkey classes and miniature horse novelty show jumping.
Mariea O'Toole, Tullow Agricultural Show pro said the talented porkies are sure to be a fan favourite.
"The pigs will be put through their paces,” Mariea said. The pigs will jump through fake hoops of fire, as the tinsel flaps to make it appear like real flames, and complete a small little obstacle course.
"Members of the audience will be able to get involved when two mammies or two daddies compete against each other with the pigs around the course. It will be a bit of fun for everyone."
