IT’S not just cat­tle and horses that draw the crowds to the an­nual Ti­na­hely Show as Pets’ Cor­ner con­tin­ues to be as pop­u­lar as ever.

This year’s show will once again take place at Fair­wood Park on Bank Hol­i­day Mon­day, Au­gust

7. Chil­dren in par­tic­u­lar are al­ways thrilled to get up close and ex­pe­ri­ence such a wide va­ri­ety of an­i­mals.

All types of pets can be en­tered, from small ponies, don­keys, rab­bits, farm an­i­mals, pheas­ants, pup­pies, and snakes to hair­less cats.

There are five cat­e­gories open to com­peti­tors, so if you have some­thing a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent, come and show all the other pet lovers your spe­cial friend.

Cat­e­gories for this year are as fol­lows: 1. Best Furry Pet 2. Best Feath­ered Pet 3. Any Other Pet

4. Best Mother and Brood 5. Most Un­usual Pet.

Peo­ple of all ages are en­cour­aged to dis­play their pre­cious pets in this an­nual event. It’s only €3 to en­ter each cage with the chance to win great prizes. Each an­i­mal should have its own se­cure cage or pen and they should be clean with plenty of wa­ter and food. If you need a cage or pen for your pet, one can be ar­ranged if a prior re­quest is made.

You can en­ter in ad­vance or on the day in the Pets’ Cor­ner tent. Judg­ing com­mences at 12 p.m. sharp so get there early.

The Pets’ Cor­ner is lo­cated di­rectly to the right of the main en­trance gate. If any­body would like to get in­volved, please don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact the sec­re­tary as many hands make light work. For in­for­ma­tion call 087 235 2675 or 0402 38228.
