Christy Maye, George Gill, and Tommy Finlay
The Executive of the Tullamore Show and FBD National Livestock Show made a special presentation last night Wednesday 6th April in Bridge House Hotel, celebrating 3 Honorary Lifelong Members Christy Maye, George Gill, and Tommy Finlay.
Their dedication and commitment to the Tullamore Show Society has been remarkable over many years. The wiliness, enthusiasm and shear hard work is unmeasurable. No matter how big the challenge was there was always a solution
Christy Maye was one of the founder members having been a successful businessman in Tullamore & Mullingar. He was the brainchild behind the Tullamore Show. He masterminded new ideas and saw them through. Christy held the position as PRO for many years and played a vital part in the show’s success to date.
George Gill joined the show in the very early stages and held many positions Site Manager, Vice Chair, Assistant Secretary and culminating as Chairman in 2010. George was a great negotiator; he had an immense wealth of knowledge; his kind endearing way encouraged many volunteers along the way.
Tommy Finlay a keen exhibitor at various shows in Ireland and huge expertise in the Dairy section. Tommy was invited by one of our founder members many moons ago, with the view to taking over the dairy section. Tommy’s huge expertise and knowledge has led to the very successful Dairy Section which continues to grow. Tommy encouraged and mentored so many over the years with his calm and pleasant manner.
The Tullamore Show Executive wish our Honorary Lifelong Members the very best of luck with future endeavors.
