Flood Recovery Fundraiser

The cancellation of the Killarney Show left many disappointed – not least the hard working committee and volunteers.  So to make sure Killarney still gets to have some Show fun the Show Society have planned a bumper weekend in May!

The traditional Campdraft weekend has been extended to a three-day draft on the 17, 18 and 19 May 2013.  Friday 17 May there will be a Rodeo and Smash Up Derby and Saturday 18 May there will be a Flood Recovery Dinner at the Killarney Rec Club.  Entertainer and magician Eric Summons will be returning to Killarney to MC for the dinner and add some magic to the evening.  Local band Aperitif Jazz plays Country will also be playing following the buffet meal.

Stay tuned for more details!

Rain cancels 2013 Show

Two inches of rain in the last 24 hours has meant the grounds have turned to slush and the ring programme at the 2013 Killarney Show has been cancelled.

The following events will not go ahead today:  Stud Cattle, Horse Events, Showjump, Beginners Ring and Woodchop.

There will be no entertainment programme.  Evening events Smash Up Derby, Motorbikes and Fireworks have also been cancelled.

The pavilion in its temporary Rec Club home has excellent displays in all sections. Devonshire Teas and luncheon are available all day.  The displays will be open until 3pm today.  There will be no charge for entry.

The campdraft has been postponed.  The Society hopes to run the campdraft on a new date and combine the event with a fun day including the usual show night programme.  We will post details as soon as they are available.
