(Rest in Peace)

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Sean MacConnell yesterday morning (4th September) RIP.

The committee and associates of the Tullamore Show and AIB National Livestock Show extend their deepest sympathies to Sean’s wife and family on their great loss.

Sean was a great friend and supporter of the show for many years and we owe Sean a huge debt of gratitude for the success and prestige of the show. He would have been hugely responsible for getting the national media to visit the show and promote our activities through their coverage. Sean last visited the show only a few weeks ago and enjoyed meeting all his friends and former colleagues.

He will be sadly missed by all involved. May he rest in peace.
