It’s that time of year again where planning is in full swing for another two- day Oughterard Show! We were very fortunate last year to succeed in running our 50th anniversary when many shows around the country were water logged and organisers found it necessary to cancel. We wish to thank everyone who contributed to our very successful anniversary book. Over 500 copies were sold either on the day or by our local businesses.
We welcome all volunteers and ideas to the show committee. Don’t forget this is a voluntary organisation run by committed people who believe the show is good for our town.
Last year the Oughterard Show spent over 70,000 Euro in operations. This amount was spent either in the town with local businesses and services. Your kind sponsorship is necessary for the show to continue so thank you once again for your support.
We have many new classes being held on both days of our show in an attempt to improve and include more participants. Please read all the rules for your respective classes as there have been changes.
