Speaking at the launch event, Limerick Show Society President, Leo Walsh, told the Limerick Post, “It’s very important for Limerick, Limerick Show goes back a long way and I hope it may continue into the future.

“Shows are under a bit of pressure, agricultural shows, that’s why we have broadened it this year, to get the young people involved, and city people involved, have a carnival kind of atmosphere.”

Mr Walsh noted the show won’t just be about agriculture, it will “be a fantastic day out at only €10 to get in”.

“We have Sean O’Dowd playing and some fantastic entertainment throughout the day, especially for the kids before they go back to school.”

Limerick Show, takes place at Limerick Racecourse on Sunday, August 25.
