There is a palpable festival atmosphere as you walk around the massive show grounds to the parade rings, the exhibit marquees and the entertainment sections. 

Founded over seventy years ago the show is one of the longest running agricultural shows in Ireland and has developed as a must on everyone’s social calendar. ”


Exciting prospect moves to south-east


An exciting new Clover Hill sire joined the fully approved ranks when Kennedy’s Clover passed the Irish Horse Board inspections in March. From the penultimate crop of Clover Hill and with a classy damline, the 11-year-old returned from Italy to stand in Co. Wexford with Moses McCabe.

As the name suggests, Kennedy’s Clover is a graduate from the Kennedy’s yard in Kerry and notched up 45 points, with a 100% double clear record sheet, from his 2001 campaign before his sale to the Luise family. These Italians are avid supporters of the Irish horse and their latest purchase was campaigned by their daughter Slivia.

Moses’s daughter Siobhan, explains how Kennedy’s Clover returned home. ” We were looking for a stallion at the time and met the Luise family at a show. They mentioned that they were keen for their horse to stand in Ireland, especially in the south-east where there were good mares” As a result of that conversation the deal was done for the Italian export’s move to Enniscorthy.
