The Clonaslee Show is back – and promises another great family day out

The Clonaslee Show has incredible history and goes back 70 years – and it returns with what promises to be another great family day out this September.

After missing out last year due to almost freak-like flooding conditions the Clonaslee Show returns this year on Sunday, September 9.

This year will be the 66th year of the show – which in the Belgian Blue Pedigree Bull and Gain dog food All-Ireland championships are also taking place as well as a number of non-agricultural activities.

Amazing prizes and entertainment

Massive prize raffles are taking place on the day, with an astounding prize fund of €3,500 up for grabs – with a top cash prize of €750.

Bouncing castles, face painting, balloon modelling, bakery competitions and carnival rides ensure a perfect day for all the family. Who needs the Galway Races when you could be in with a chance of winning ‘Most Suitably Dressed Lady’ on the day?

Rock on Paddy will be MC for the day and The Buckleys will be providing live music for crowds of all ages.

The Clonaslee Show has gone from strength to strength from its conception, halting on only a couple of occasions – once for foot and mouth and then last year’s deluge.

With children going free and an adult ticket costing €10, the Clonaslee Show has proven to be the perfect day out for all the family for over 65 years.

Closing dates for entries is on Friday, August 31, and you can apply online here.
