Golden Shears Day One – The Day in Photos

With crowds building from early morning and the rain holding off, day one of the Golden Shears World Sheep Sharing Championship was a roaring success.

With the shearing dome packed to capacity and people enjoying the beautiful food on offer at the Good Food Ireland village there was something for everybody on offer today. With crowds in excess of 4,000 visitors today, the event is shaping up nicely for the remainder of the week.

If you were not one of the visitors to the Golden Shears today, here is a round up of the crowds:
