We launched our 2023 show in the Show Field at Ashton, we were delighted to be joined by our main sponsor Tirlán, represented by Chairman John Murphy. Excitement is building for our show on the 17th June. Left to right Gorey Show President, Lorcan Allen, Secretary Melissa Blake, Tirlán Chairman John Murphy and our Chairman Willie Cecil.
Gorey Show are delighted to announce that Tirlan formerly Glanbia have very generously renewed their sponsorship for another year. Tirlan are synonomous with agriculture in Ireland and hae been a staple in the lives of most people for a long time. We thank especially John G Murphy, chairman of Tirlan for his continued support.
Gorey Agricultural Show has had a variety of homes over the years, most recently at Clonattin, Gorey in 2019. Unfortunately the last 2 years were lost due to Covid, as was the case with all Agricultural Shows in the country. The Show Committee are delighted to announce that the venue for the 2023 show is Ashton, Ballycanew, by kind permission of Mrs Anne Hardy & Family. The Hardy Family are well associated with Gorey Agricultural Show having previously hosted the show from 1995 to 2009.
Ashton is very well located on the main Gorey to Wexford Road, near exit 23 on the motorway.
We would like to express our thanks to Tirlan who are our main sponsor again this year, and thanks to Chairman of Tirlán, local man John G Murphy for finding time in his schedule for our photoshoot in Ashton. Glanbia is synonymous with Agriculture and well represented locally with branches in Ballycanew & Kilmuckridge.
