The Tullamore Show are delighted to have been awarded the honourable title of Offaly Person of the Year 2018.
”Since its revival in the early 1990s the Show has gone from strength to strength and celebrated its 25th anniversary recently”, commented the Chairperson of the Offaly Person of the Year judging panel, Ann Carey.
Added Ms Carey: “Headed by Chairperson, Brenda Kiernan and Operations Manager, Freda Kinnarney, the Show celebrates the crème de la crème of Irish agriculture on the second Sunday of August each year at the Butterfield Estate, Blueball.”
The Tullamore Show is truly grateful for this award, as it represents the strong community ethic that is the Tullamore Show. The show is made up of every person that takes from their daily business, to help to make this event, Ireland’s Premier Show.
We are honoured to join the ranks of John Flanagnan of Flanagan Properties, John Grennan of Rath, and back to the first winner of the award, the late John Dowling and many wonderful people who have been selected by a sub committee of the Offaly Person of the Year Awards.
The presentation of the 2018 Offaly Person of the Year will take place at a gala function in The Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore on Saturday, 30 March.
