Shropshire Sheep at Teagasc Sheep 2018
Sheep 2018 – Farm to Fork is the biggest sheep event to be held in Ireland in 2018. The Shropshire Breed will be represented at the event in Athenry, Co. Galway by John White. The event takes place at Teagasc, Mellows Campus, Athenry, Co Galway, on Saturday 7 July 2018. Sheep 2018 is a continuation of the sheep events which are jointly run by Teagasc, the Department of Agriculture, University College Dublin, Bord Bia, Sheep Ireland and the Irish Farmers Journal.
This year, to celebrate the designation of Galway, West of Ireland 2018, European Region of Gastronomy, Galway County Council will also be a partner for the event. Consequently, there will be a significant food element to this year’s event, hence the title Sheep 2018 – Farm to Fork. The event opens to the public at 10am and admission is free. It should be a great day for all sheep farmers and their families to attend.Back
