Final preparations being made for this year’s Tinahely Show
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.
