It is with a heavy heart that due to the continuing situation with regards to Covid-19 and following public health guidelines and recommendation from the Irish Shows Association, the committee at Moate Show Society have had to make the decision to cancel our show for 2020.
While this decision was not an easy one to make, we feel that it is in the best interest of the health and safety of the public, our sponsors and our exhibitors.
We would like to thank all of our exhibitors, who come from all over the country, brining with them some of the finest quality livestock and home-produce there is to be found, and the general public, who attend the show, year in, year out, whose presence adds to our family day out.
A special word of thanks to our sponsors who have been supporting us over the past number of years. We would encourage everyone to support our local businesses in these uncertain times as they have always been the first ones to support others.
We are now all turning our attention to 2021, a show which will be bigger and better than ever. We look forward to renewing old friendships, and making new ones with our sponsors, exhibitors and supporters of the show.
