Thank you to the sponsors, without them the show simply couldn’t run whether it be in kind or financially we really appreciate their generous support. Especially the title sponsors EDA Media & Newry, Mourne & Down District Council we appreciate their continued sponsorship.

 

With glorious sun the day began with exhibitors arriving early to get the showing classes underway, the craft and food stalls opened up for business displaying all the very best local food and amazing home crafts and art. There was Jiving this year for the first time which proved to be a very popular without a space on the dance floor all day. Ballyvalley Archery as ever encouraged visitors to have a go at Archery. Seaforde Vintage club had a threshing & vintage tractor display.

 

Trade and stalls were busy throughout the day.  A visit to Save the Children vintage tea room was  a must for afternoon tea @ Castlewellan Show. Mayobridge Farm Model exhibition was busy all day with children eyes wide with amazement with all the tractors and detailed farm models on display.

 

As an agricultural show they aim to promote & support agriculture our Cattle, Horse, Pig, Goats, Rabbit, Sheep, Poultry, Home Industries & Dog Agility all ran very successfully on the day.
