Ollie Curtis is pleased to announce that there will be a new livestock show at the traditional Nobber Show, Fair Day & Vintage display, in conjunction with the Irish Shows Association.
“We used to have a small show of livestock at the fair with different cattle, sheep and horses, but this year we are having a show for pedigree and commercial show cattle,” explained Ollie.
The event will be held in Nobber, Co. Meath on Sunday (May 19th).
Limousin, Charolais, Simmental, Hereford and Angus cattle and other commercial breeds will be on show at the fair. There will also be Charollais, Texel and Suffolk sheep on display.
One of the top breeders in Ireland for Charollais sheep will be in attendance with his flock.
“It’s a big addition,” said Ollie, “something that’s never been done before”. There will also be a sheep shearing competition, with shearers coming from as far as Donegal and Scotland.
The sheep shearing competition is in the third year at the fair, and numbers of interested competitors are growing every year.
There will be entertainment for both young and old with vintage displays, crafts including tinsmith and blacksmith horseshoeing.
The show will also be celebrating fifty years of the Ford Capri for the vintage enthusiasts.
Live music will be provided by Matt Leavey, Charlie Arkins, Jim Devine, Ray Murtagh and Paul Leavey.
