Mairead McGuinness to open Sligo County Agricultural Show in Riverstown

North West MEP and European Parliament vicepresident Mairead McGuinness will open the Sligo County Agricultural Show in Riverstown this weekend.

The Fine Gael MEP will address the show at half past one on Saturday.

The event has been held in Riverstown since 1994, following closure of the County Show which had until then been held annually in Sligo Town.

The late Paddy Kenny was the main person involved in ensuring it continued and with the help of the Riverstown Creamery Committee guaranteed its survival.

PRO Imelda Ryan-Jones says this year as always it’s a family day with events for kids and awareness initiatives as well:
