Riverstown Agriculture Show is on

There is a bumper day of activities in store at this year's County Agricultural Show which is taking place on Saturday.

Aurivo is proud to announce its sponsorship of this year's show which is being held in the Riverstown Community Park. For a second year the Connacht Gold Kitchen will be back cooking up a storm, with celebrity chef Joe Shannon demonstrating a number of delicious ways to use the range of Connacht Gold products.

Speaking about the sponsorship Aurivo CEO Aaron Forde said: "The Sligo County Agricultural Show is a fantastic event that brings so much to the Sligo & Riverstown community.

"The people of Connacht have supported our Connacht Gold brand from the day it was established, so it's an honour for us to have the opportunity to support our local agricultural show and animate our food brand through The Connacht Gold Kitchen experience".

The Sligo County Agricultural Show has been celebrating rural living and agricultural heritage since 1994 and the event continues to grow year on year.

Commenting on the Aurivo sponsorship, Sligo County Agricultural Show Secretary, Linda Noone said: "Aurivo and their team have been a fantastic support to the Sligo County Agricultural Show. As a voluntarily organised initiative we rely heavily on the patronage of local companies to help bring this show to life each year. To have a global agribusiness like Aurivo headquartered in our county, offering the contribution and sponsorship they have to this event has been truly tremendous and something we are really grateful for".

For those who enjoy bitesize sandwiches, mini scones and dainty pastry works of art, this year the introduction of the Afternoon Tea Tray in the Home Industries section, sponsored by Connacht Gold, invites all baking enthusiasts to enter in the gentrified tradition that everyone loves. Celebrity Chef Joe Shannon will be on hand to judge the newly added section.

Cooking demonstrations with Joe Shannon will take place from 12-5pm in The Connacht Gold Kitchen marquee. For more information see
