Fri, 28th Jan, 2022

The Tullamore Show & FBD National Livestock Show is set to return on Sunday 14th August 2022 at the Butterfield Estate Blueball.

Speaking at the recent Tullamore Show AGM, Chairperson Joseph Molloy stated that we are very optimistic the show would return in 2022, however given the recent changes in Covid regulations plans are fully underway to ensure that the Tullamore Show & FBD National Livestock Show goes ahead as near to normal as possible this August. It has been a tough two years for us, and the uncertainty has certainly brought its challenges.

We are very grateful to our main sponsor FBD who have supported us throughout this pandemic, and we look forward to working with them for this coming show and many more. We would like to acknowledge the support from all our stakeholders both national and international and we also look forward to working with them this year.

With the recent announcement of lifting the restrictions, our plans are well underway with the continuous help of our hardworking committee and volunteers, we look forward to working together to once again stage Irelands Premier Show.

2022 will see the very best of Irish livestock return to the showing ring and we anticipate very keen competition for a whooping prize fund, along with a range of highly sought-after gold medals and cups to be won on Show Day. Michael Dolan, chairman of our Livestock Committee stated, “there is a huge appetite for people to get back into the showing ring, doing what they love best”. During the pandemic he noted that a lot of young people have developed an interest in showing livestock and that some classes may be adjusted to allow for more young stock and young handlers.

Finally, Mr. Molloy would like to thank the general public for their kindness and messages of goodwill over the last two years, he also stated that the organising committee will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation closely while ensuring that health and safety guidelines are our main priority, and he looks forward to seeing everyone on Sunday 14th August 2022 at the Butterfield Estate.
