Tullamore Show and FBD National Livestock Show is fast approaching Show Day which is Sunday 14th August. Entries flew in and have surpassed all records in most areas. The greenfield site is beginning to be transformed into a tented village with marquees going up and trackway being laid. The tying areas for all the hundreds of livestock are being set up, so work is in full swing. Our loyal buddies are back with some new team members busy marking out all the trade stand areas. We are blessed to have such wonderful volunteers.

Tickets are on sale now online for €20 or on the day for €25. Why not skip the Q and scan it through? Tullamore Show really is a great family day out with free entry for children under 12.
