The Tydavnet Parish Show committee have confirmed that the 61st show, scheduled for August 18th will go ahead, but will be scaled down.
The decision was taken due to field conditions being less than ideal for livestock classes, given the recent spell of wet weather. In fact, July was the wettest and coldest on record.
But the show must and will go on, and the indoor classes such as Home Industries and kids’ classes will proceed as normal, as will the Bonny Baby and Dog Show heats.
The cattle, sheep, horses and show jumping classes have been cancelled at Tydavnet Show. All other events and competitions will take place at the Scotstown GAA Complex and grounds.
The safety meeting for all stewards and helpers due to take place tonight, Thursday, will now take place on Monday night August 13th at 8.30pm in St. Mary’s Hall, Urbleshanny.
