There was only one way to celebrate the long-awaited return of the Carnew Show and that was with ice-cream.

A huge crowd attended the recent event and the glorious sunshine coupled with the return of normality had everyone in good spirits. Horse shows, a sheep section, a dog show, pets corner and some tasty home baking were just some of the things to be enjoyed on the day.

“Attendance was well up and everybody was happy to be out again and meeting up,” said Dorothy Lazenby from the Carnew Agricultural Show organising committee. “They were just happy to be getting together and so glad that there was a show to go to after so many years.”

According to Dorothy, the warm weather drove kids and kids at heart towards the ice-cream stand.

“The ice cream was the happiest man on the field I’d say. There was such a queue for ice-cream.”

The organisers greatly appreciate the generosity of the Stephen’s family and Kinsella Estates for giving the site up for the show every year, said Dorothy.

“There was lots of help at the beginning when we started to plan the show we didn’t know how it was going to pan out. We had lots of volunteers and a lot of good will from our sponsors and it all went really well,” she added.
