Livestock & Horticulture
The Cork County Yearling Gelding and Filly Championship is now in its thirty-fourth
year, and is sponsored by Allied Irish Bank, Skibbereen. This highly competitive event always ensures a fine presentation of top young horses from around the county.
The Cork County Beef Bull Championship enters its thirty-third year and is open to all major beef breeds.
This is sponsored by Munster Bovine. The standard of the bulls is extremely high, and it forms a huge attraction in the bovine section.
Skibbereen Show has been noted for its marvelous trade stands display, some who come from far afield, who exhibit a variety of local crafts, foods, shrubs and plants, machinery and dairy equipment, farm and business services and local enterprise.
Again, this year the Show has its very popular children’s amusements section, and the very popular mobile pet farm is attending.
A new attraction this year will be Cycle Sense who will have a bicycle obstacle course for kids to come and have some fun. The Cycle Sense workshop in the show grounds will be open for people to call in and visit on the day to see their work on reusing bicycles and revive paint centre.
There will be live music in the afternoon.
