BLESSED with sunshine, while it poured elsewhere in the county, this really was the year for the country show comeback, with our own Adamstown Show leading the way with the first big day out.

"It was one of the best shows we ever had,” said one of the 80 plus show organisers, Eunan Flood.

"There was a large crowd who were thrilled to get back after two years.”

The many trade stands were busy all day and the level of competition was very high throughout the competitions.

"The weather stayed fine all day. A lot of hard work went into this and we had extra helpers on the day and we can’t forget everyone who helped out down through the years, who have made the show what it is.”

An Adamstown GAA ladies raffle raised around €1,000, with a load of timbre won.

"People were in good spirits and thoroughly enjoyed the weather.”

The 73rd Adamstown agricultural, horticultural, trade and vintage show featured horse entries in a variety of classes, sheep entries, home produce, baking, dog show, flowers, vegetable, craft, needlework, art, photography and much, much more.

There was also be dog entries, show jumping, Best Dressed Lady sponsored by Lulu’s Boutique, New Ross, South East Radio sponsored McSorley’s Centra, Ballinaboola, and much, much more. 

One of the big events of the day is the All Ireland Tattersalls & Red Mills Thoroughbred Broodmare Championship, which had a prize fund of €1,500.

Thousands of people descended on the village for the show.

The show, taking place on lands kindly donated by the Cullen, Whelan and Redmond families, had around 40 trade stands. Parking facilities at the Adamstown Show are always second to none with lots of car parking space available adjacent to all the action.
