Fermanagh a fitting, if wet, finale to agri show season

By Richard Halleron

Visitors to this year's Fermanagh Show enjoyed a fitting finale to the 2017 season despite the wet conditions.

With a high turnout of livestock and visitors, the show in Enniskillen "continues to reflect all that is good about the farming and food sectors in this area", Fermanagh Farming Society chairman Ruth Armstrong said.

"We had an excellent entry of stock in the dairy, beef and sheep sections. And we want to build on this for the future," added Ms Armstrong.

"The event has been a fitting finale to the 2017 show season."

The inter-breed dairy championship was won by Iain McLean and his exceptional Holstein cow Priestland PS James Rose - her seventh inter-breed title of the year.

The beef inter-breed championship was won by the McIlwaine family from Newtownstewart with their 16-month-old bull Corrick Hamlet.
