Tinahely Agricultural Show takes place on August Bank Holiday Monday at Fairwood, Tinahely.  The IFA Food from our Farms Tent is definitely worth a visit this year. 

There will be a great variety of gourmet foods and many Exhibitors will be doing tastings and giving advice on preparation. These vary from hot foods including tasty burgers, beef, lamb and chicken to artisan cheeses, sauces, sweet treats and much more.

The beekeeper with his hive of bees will be there and this always attracts large crowds all day. In addition there is a Farm Safety Competition with many valuable prizes for the winners which are generously sponsored each year by M.A.Healy & Sons Ltd. With so much on offer the IFA Tent is well worth a visit on the day.
