The Ardee Concert Band attended the 125th Co Louth Agricultural Show in Bellurgan Park on Sunday.
This was a first for the band, who performed for the first time at the show on the steps at the front of the dwelling house which still holds all its extensive period features.
“The band were well received at the show and we had a very enjoyable day in the fantastic summer sun,” Said PRO Sinéad Nutley. “There was many an onlooker bobbing their head or tapping their feet along with the band’s summer programme which was directed by band MD Brendan Breslin.”
The Agricultural Show showcased the best of produce, skills, crafts and traditions of the county and proved to be the perfect family day out. Overlooking the beautifully planted lawn the band played to a sun drenched audience who all relaxed with a beverage whilst basking in the summer sun.
Over the stream there were numerous classes for arts, crafts, horticulture, photography, baking, poultry and waterfowl, flower arranging classes aswell as machinery on view, livestock and pet competitions. Classes for children and those with special needs were also available.
