Action-packed day in Athy for County Show
16:08 Thursday 14th of June 2018

The Kildare County Show is taking place in the GAA grounds in Athy on Sunday at 11am.

Activities include a Food Fayre, Machinery and Cars, a Dog Show, Bubble Soccer, Sheep Dog Trials, Music and Dancing, a Petting Corner and much much more! 

All accompanied under 14s are free of charge. The organisers said: "The Kildare County Show Society has contributed greatly to the social and economic development of Athy and its hinterland over the past hundred years and intends to continue to do so for many years to come. 

"One of its great strengths has been to grow with changing circumstances, adapting in format and emphasis over the years to meet the demands of modern times and economic circumstances." The 50-strong committee was also praised for their time and effort. 

The show began as the South Kildare Agricultural and Horticultural Show Society, based in Athy, around the beginning of the 20th Century.
