Clonakilty show on Sunday 10th of June. Great, affordable family day out.

 

Welcome to this year’s Clonakilty Agricultural Show.  It’s all happening on Sunday, 10th June and takes place in the Show Grounds Clonakilty, just a short distance from the Award Winning Town of Clonakilty. This huge event has been attracting thousands of people yearly from far and wide with its mixture of agricultural events, concerts and special emphasis on an affordable family day out – all set against the beautiful backdrop of the rugged countryside and the Atlantic Ocean – along the Wild Atlantic Way.

Show day is about animals and the show grounds will be turned into a mini wonderland with frisky calves paraded on their first day out at the show. Foals as young as two weeks old can be admired while fully grown horses will be there in all their glory, groomed with manes and tails plaited.

Dogs are always a treat to see and the dog show is one of the most popular attractions every year with classes open to all canines – mutt and pedigree. Breeds from sheepdogs to St Bernard will be on show.  

Clonakilty Show is recognised as one of the top shows in the country, its cornerstone has always been the exhibiting of the finest animals and bringing out the best of breeds, be it horses or ponies, cattle or sheep and of late the return of poultry.

Agricultural shows are part of our heritage, something deep rooted in our hearts and memories.  For some of us, we have the memory of a unique family day out, being taken to the show on the second Wednesday in July as a toddler and young child; it was one of the few family days out in the year, now we bring our own children or grandchildren to continue in the tradition.

Today, more than ever, we cherish those simple, special occasions when we meet old friends, exchange the news, have a chat, and have a wonderful day out.  Clonakilty show is the place to be on Sunday 10th June, where else would you be.

This is what shows is all about, meeting up with fiends, old friends, neighbours, relatives with a rouged view of the country side and the Atlantic Ocean, full of attraction for young and old, entertainment at an affordable price.
