In Pictures: Bonnie Babies, Glamorous Grannies and much more – The Ossory Show

The Ossory Show is one of Ireland’s longest-running agricultural shows and it held another hugely successful staging on Sunday.

The hugely popular Ossory Truck Show also took place on the same day.

The event – which was set up in 1898 – takes place in the showgrounds, which are located in Coolfin, Kilbreedy, Rathdowney.

This year’s show once again featured a massive truck, vintage car and tractor show and much more.

We had the Bonnie Babies, Glamorous Grannies and Little Miss Ossory competitions also.

A huge crowd was in attendance once again and it was a brilliant day.

Our photographer Julie Anne Miller went along and captured some great pictures.

While Alf Harvey was on duty on the agricultural end of it where he got some great snaps also.
