Claregalway Agricultural Show

About Event:

Twenty five years ago a small number of committed enthusiastic people got together and the first ever Claregalway Agricultural Show was launched. The show was put together in a few weeks and since then it has grown into what it is today. The show has gone from strength to strength every year and although still run by a small dedicated committee it continues to improve each year. It is no longer a small show and is very well attended.The first chairperson was Ray Halpin, Séamus O’Connell succeeded him, after that the late Paul Fleming, who was also one of the founder members and the present chairperson is Val Noone.


The early shows were all held in the local Community Centre and GAA grounds until the show needed a larger venue. The Duffy family in Rockwood was then approached and they very willingly gave full use of their facilities to the show committee. The show continues to be held in Duffys and it has proved to be an excellent venue. The committee is indebted to the Duffy family for the use of their facilities for the show every year.
