Achill Sheep Show 2022

For latest news of forthcoming events see the Achill Sheep Show facebook page.

First held in 1986, the Achill Sheep Show has been an annual institution every year since then – with the exception of 2001, the year of the Foot and Mouth alert. It has evolved along the way to feature nineteen sheep categories. Cups, rosettes and generous cash prizes are awarded to the winners. In addition, all entrants have the opportunity to win valuable spot prizes on the day. A ladies committee has worked diligently to stage many other events such as local crafts, best vegetables, floral arrangements and home baking. Country markets set up their stalls and children are catered for by way of art competitions and fun events.
