The Committee of Mohill Agricultural Show are very proud to be hosting their 85th Annual Agricultural Show Day on Sunday August 19th next and in doing so remember fondly the work of the many people who worked on behalf of Mohill Show since 1926.
Mohill’s first Show was actually held on 29th October 1844 and continued for many decades. In 1926 Canon MJ Masterson revived the tradition of Mohill Show with the formation of a new Committee who laid the foundation stone for a long and successful history of Show Days in the Community.
The Committee are delighted to host two All Ireland Championship Finals in co-operation with the Irish Shows Association:
• The Leitrim Irish Draught Breeders Championship sponsored by Horse Sport Ireland and The Leitrim Irish Draught Horse Breeders Association and
