annual event is regarded as one of the best in the region attracting exhibitors from a
wide area. Prize money has increased to €17,000 and a variety of goods will be on
offer for the prize winners in the various classes. This year Ballinamore will host

Farm, Garden and Photography sections also commences at 11am and indications
are that the number of exhibitors will exceed previous years. The Best Dressed

contenders for the title of Most Glamorous Granny and Miss Fashionista and Mother

Field to a close. The presence of many trade stands, stalls all add to the carnival
atmosphere of Show Day and provide entertainment for all the family. The
Committee would like to thank the local business Community for their continued
support and also the many firms who have sponsored the various classes.
