Co Louth Agricultural show – Sun 14th June

2015 County Louth Agricultural Show  – Sunday, 14th June 2015 at Bellurgan Park

Welcome to the 2015 County Louth Agricultural Show run by Dundalk Show Society. The show will take place on Sunday, 14th June 2015 at Bellurgan Park, Carlingford Road, Dundalk.

The County Louth Agricultural Show aims to showcase agricultural practices for all ages, bringing together rural and urban life.

The Co. Louth Agricultural Show has a mission, “To be a Shop Window for what is produced locally, explaining the process from farm to fork, highlighting best agricultural practice and adherence to quality production”. Shows like the Co. Louth Agricultural Show also help to preserve traditions handed down through generations which otherwise could be forgotten.

This is Co Louth Agricultural Show’s 3rd year at the Bellurgan Park venue which promises to be an even further success as that of last year.

This will be the 126th year of the Show formerly known as Dundalk Show.  The 2015 show preparation is currently underway, with the committee promising it to be even better than previous years. The website will be constantly updated with latest news, competition information and entertainment line up.
