The 41st Elphin Agricultural Show will take place on the grounds of Elphin Mart this Saturday (September 1st), with €40,000 in prize money on offer across a wide range of classes.
Among the main attractions this weekend will be All-Irelands in Pedigree Charolais Baby Calf with a prize fund of €1,500, Baby Beef Heifer with a prize of €2,500, and Commercial Breeding Heifer unhaltered with a prize of €1,500. As well as strong Horse and Cattle sections, the show will also feature a Sheep section with 20 classes, goats, farm produce, flowers, cookery, handcraft, adult and junior art sections, poultry, and a terrific dog section.
Other events include novelty sections such as Bonny Baby, Little Miss and Master, Parent and Child lookalike, Miss Teen, Glamorous Granny, and Most Appropriately Dressed Lady and Gentleman. There will also be plenty of children’s entertainment.
Elphin Show organisers believe it is set to be the biggest and best yet, with live music from Ciarán Rosney at An Bóthar Rua on Saturday night to round off what promises to be a wonderful day.
