Chairpersons Welcome

We are delighted that the Bannow & Rathangan Agricultural Show is returning this year on July 14th at Killag, Duncormick.

It is heart-warming to see the country opening up again and events being planned. We look forward to welcoming you all to Killag. The Bannow and Rathangan Show is a major event in the calendar of the Southeast. It is a day out for all the family and embodies all that is good in rural Ireland. 

The Show depends on the support of exhibitors, sponsors, and volunteers, alongside our dedicated, hardworking committee.

We look forward to your support. It is our intention to run the usual classes and attractions. We would like you to spread the word, to invite others along , so that they can experience all that the day has to offer.  After the disappointment of two cancelled shows,  we are eagerly awaiting July 14th. We count ourselves fortunate to have such a wonderful site for the show, thanks to the generosity of James and Veronica White. We hope the sun shines on us on Show Day. Join us in Killag on July 14th. Together we can make our Show better than ever.
