Oughterard 57th Annual Agricultural Show
Sunday 28th August 2022

Once more the Oughterard Show is gathering together its members and volunteers to organize the 57th show which takes place at Corribdale Grounds and Oughterard Community Centre on Sunday 28th August.  There are numerous classes for horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, poultry and dogs, as well as the domestic arts section. 

As usual we are hosting the Final of the Joyces All Ireland Ridden Performance Championship and the Western Region Irish Draught Foal Final.

The Domestic Arts section will be held in the Community Centre where there are categories suitable for everyone in the family from grandparents exhibiting their traditional skills, to children exhibiting their drawings or painted hard boiled eggs.  

We would like to thank all who have supported our fundraising events to date this year and to thank in advance all our sponsors, supporters and exhibitors, and not forgetting our hard working team of volunteers. 

The committee is open to and welcomes new ideas that would enhance Show Day and would love to hear from individuals and groups alike: contact us on telephone 086 1517289. 

The Show Schedule and entry forms will be available from the Show Office and local shops from early July and can also be downloaded from the website www.oughterardshow.ie


Oughterard Show Day (28th August 2022) 
The RSA Shuttle is coming to our town!

The shows organising committee is pleased to announce that the Road Safety Authority (RSA) interactive unit known as the Shuttle, will attend our show. We are fortunate in having had FORUM Connemara’s Farm Health and Safety EIP Scheme secure the booking of this superb interactive tool which will allow you test your motoring or cycling skills.The FORUM Farm Health and Safety EIP will be at the show and will be signing farmers up to do Farm risk assessments and demo farm safety gear. The shuttle is a highly popular and educational road safety experience. It’s a superb learning tool to get across important and life-saving road safety messages in a highly memorable way. What you can do in the RSA’s Shuttle unit:

• Practice your driving and hazard perception skills on the state of the art car, motorbike or bicycle simulators.

• Experience first-hand the dangers of driving and texting and driver fatigue.

• Try the brake reaction timer to see how driving environments and speed affect your braking distances.

• Learn about tyre safety as your tyres are your only contact with the road!

• Play interactive road safety games.
