Claremorris agricultural show was founded in 1904 and hosted in Hollymount, it is believed to have originated from a split in what was originally the Hollymount agricultural show. Over the 100th shows, it was disrupted by two World wars and two outbreaks of foot and mouth disease. The committee were split on a decision to wind it up in 1939 but due to positive stubbornness by some members it survived to be hale, hearty and long lived.
For many years visits by the famous Army Equestrian teams graced the show days to the delight of the many in attendance. The winning Agha Khan team competed here in the sixties. The Legendary Royal Blues Showband sponsored pony (14-2)event to the tune of £500 making it the highest in Ireland at this time. Cameron Hanley started out here before going on to represent Ireland and establish a very successful career! It was a two day show for many years.
Dillions field hosted the show (off Convent road entrance) for the years until it’s entrances proved to narrow for modern day trucks. And then in 1960 it went to its present home at the racecourse or as is known nowadays as the Atlectic Grounds. ( one of the top class venues of its kind in the country) The running track is superb and the massive indoor running track houses exhibits and trade stands on show days.
