Cashel will be hosting the All-Ireland & All Nations Sheep Shearing & Wool Handling Championships 2019 on Saturday, May 25th and Sunday, May 26th.
There will be over one thousand sheep on-site over the weekend, with five shearing competitions held over the two days, according to organisers.
The main family festival will take place on Sunday, May 26th where there will be an animal health village, a food & beverage village, as well as plenty of fun activities for young children amongst many other attractions.
On Saturday night, there will be live music and food as well as the Bulmers Speed Shearing competition.
As this is "the only major sheep event being held in Ireland this year", much interest is anticipated from farmers from all over Ireland, as well as many attendees from the local towns and rural community, with crowds expected to exceed three thousand, organisers have said.
The All Ireland & All Nations Sheep Shearing & Wool Handling Championships 2019 was officially launched in Cashel on last Wednesday (April 24th).
Tipperary All-Star - Noel McGrath - and Munster and Ireland Rugby star - Denis Leamy - were on standby to shear some sheep, with young members of Cashel Rugby Club in attendance, to observe the action.
