The meetings were had, the entries are in, the tents are up, the grass is cut and we are ready to go for the 67th Annual Tydavnet Show.
To give some of our patrons an insight to the preparation of the Tydavnet Show, we met in February (over 6 months ago) to prepare for tomorrow. After numerous meetings and months of organisation from the committee and its members we hope tomorrow will run smoothly. Yes we may have some hiccups along the way but our aim is to ensure you have an enjoyable day from the moment you leave your house to you arrive back. The show exhibitors, trade stands, entertainment, catering, music (the list goes on) have also invested their time to attend this show and we hope they too enjoy the day.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far and we hope that you all enjoy your day at the show tomorrow.
We leave you with this saying
Tydavnet Show Committee
Show week has arrived, as we are all getting over this disappointment of the weekends football in Croke Park our attention turns to setting up the show field this week in advance of our big day this Saturday 18th August. We will be in the show field every day this week so why not come down and lend a hand even for an hour or two. The main times to be there is between 6-9pm each evening. We need help setting up livestock rings, show jumping arenas, tents, marquees and much much more. So your help will be appreciated. Any queries please call (086) 192 5435.
We have received several requests from exhibitors and patrons to provide an Eircode for the show so everyone can easily locate the show field. As the show field does not have a house we have located the closest house to the field and below is the Eircode for it:
Plans are in full swing for the 67th annual Tydavnet show to be held on Saturday next 18th August. The entries closed on Friday last and initial count exhibitors is up on last year across most classes which is great to see. Regarding the field set-up we are planning to commence works on Monday next 13th August. Anyone wishing to help out please come along even for an hour or two to lend a hand as ‘many hands make light work’. We will be working each day next week to ensure all exhibitors and patrons have a pleasant experience on show day. We will keep you posted on preparations….
