Grianán Estate, Burt, Inishowen, County Donegal, on 30 and 31 May 2015.
More than 200 competitors sheared 2,200 hundred sheep across 19 different categories in two days of intense, international competition.
Upwards of 15,000 spectators were at the Inishowen venue. In addition to the sheep shearing competitions there was a range of other attractions including, children’s activities, arts and crafts, artisan food, heritage features, sheep shows, sheep dog trials, trade stands, cookery demonstrations, a food quarter and special appearance by renowned Star Wars costuming club Emerald Garrison.
Shearing got under way at 8am on Saturday morning, and continued right through Sunday whit large crowds attending.
RILCO had a stand which featured a full range of products from Neptunus corrugated sheeting, polycarbonate glazing through to insulated panels.
The show was a great success and we look forward to the next year and to the forthcoming events such as The National Ploughing Championships.
