Mohill Agricultural Show will not take place this year and has instead been postponed until 2022, according to the show’s organisers.
The decision was made following a recommendation from the Irish Shows Association (ISA), the show organisers said.
Based near the town of Mohill, Co. Leitrim, the show – held in August during normal times – runs a variety of pedigree and non-pedigree cattle and sheep classes, as well as competitions for horses, ponies, goats and poultry. The show also has a vintage section and a range of other contests.
In a statement today (Tuesday, April 27) the show-runners said:
