Gorey Agricultural Show has had a variety of homes over the years, Ashton was our location between 1995 to 2009 and now we have returned by kind permission of Mrs Anne Hardy & Family. The Hardy Family are well associated with Gorey Agricultural Show and we are very grateful to them for facilitating us.  

Ashton is very well located on the main Gorey to Wexford Road, near exit 23 on the motorway.

We would like to express our thanks to Tirlan who are our main sponsor again this year, and thanks to Chairman of Tirlán, local man John G Murphy for finding time in his schedule for our photoshoot in Ashton. Glanbia is synonymous with Agriculture and well represented locally with branches in Ballycanew & Kilmuckridge.

This year’s show will take place on the 15th June, our committee are working very hard behind the scenes to ensure that this year’s show will be bigger and better. Having had no agricultural shows for 2 years our 2022 and 2023 shows were a great success and very well attended, we are confident that this years show will surpass last year.   We pride ourselves on providing a fun filled family day out, with equestrian classes, cattle & sheep showing, craft competitions, pets corner, dog show, vintage and amusements. Our schedule is available online at www.goreyagriculturalshow.com where you can enter online.  Closing date for entries is 7th June.
