‘Show Day’ co-produced by Alan Bradley and Cathy Dunne will hit our screens tonight - Tune into RTÉ 1 at 7:30pm.

‘Show Day’, a 30-minute documentary which captures the excitement of the 76th Virginia Agricultural Show, Co. Cavan is set to debut on RTÉ 1 at 7:30pm tonight (Monday, July, 16th).

The programme focuses on a Co. Monaghan livestock exhibitor who has his eyes fixed securely on the hotly-anticipated Diageo Baileys Champion Dairy Cow title and prize-fund.

Camera crews also follow members of the committee who are the main drivers of the success of the show and a five-year-old girl called Penny embraces her competitive to streak to battle it out for top honours in the ‘best decorated wooden spoon’ competition.

“Heart-warming” and “uplifting”

Co-produced, by Cavan native Alan Bradley and Cathy Dunne, the project was funded by Cavan County Council under the CreativeIrl programme through Ramor Theatre.

Producers of the show promise a “heart-warming” and “uplifting” piece of work which captures the spirit of the agricultural community in the heart of rural Ireland.
