The 124th County Louth Agricultural Show is due to take place at new venue, Bellurgan Park, Carlingford Road, Dundalk on Sunday, June 16.

The Show could not be a success without the sponsorship received and which the organisation value very much.

“As a non profit making organisation, such sponsorship is our life line and without it the Show could not take place,” said Carmel Mee, chairperson of the County Louth Show.

“To this end, we are hoping very much to continue where we left off last year in providing as much entertainment for the whole family for what promises to be a great family day out.

“Whilst at the same time, in keeping with the ethos of the County Louth Agricultural Show, providing much bigger and wider range of horticulture, craft and animal classes on display.”

There are a number of selected events which can be specifically sponsored or in keeping with past traditions, a general sponsorship would be gratefully received.

The Show makes a series of donations to local charities with any profits generated.

The 2013 Show committee have committed to honour this tradition but also extend this to select one leading charity that the show will provide additional support. The leading charity selected for 2013 is SOSAD Ireland.
