The Tullamore Show & FBD National Livestock Show 2020 that should have been.
We marked the occassion as best we could in the circumstances.
Thank you for marking the occassion with us.
Good morning from Butterfield Estate, Tullamore on the day that should have been the annual Tullamore Show & FBD National Livestock Show. Join Freda Kinnarney, Operations Manager and Secretary, from a very quiet showground.
Brenda, in her fourth year as Chairperson of the Tullamore Show @ FBD National Livestock Show, would rather meet you all in person and run the largest one day show in the country. Unfortunately, that cannot be the case today. Here is a special message from her to you.
CHIEF COMMERCIAL OFFICER, FBD, TITLE SPONSOR
The Show is only possible with the help and generosity of our sponsors, year on year. They enable us to offer the huge €175,000 prize fund that the winners share in. John Cahalan, Chief Commercial Officer in FBD Insurance has shared a message with us. Your support of our Sponsors would be much appreciated
