Tydavnet Show Day 2016

If Ireland had the weather it would be the best country in the world. A lot of Ireland's events depends on having good weather as they are outside events and if there is a drop of rain, or a continuous deluge, people are loathe to attend the event. The Tydavnet Show is one of those outside events which needs fairly good weather but this year it was the worst kind of bad weather - looking like it was going to pour all the time, even though it only came in showers. It did frighten many as the crowds were smaller than normal and a heavy shower showed up now and again. It also caused the pony and horse jumping to be cancelled as under hoof conditions were dangerous. It did not stop the businesses coming to display their wares and cattle owners, sheep owners and horse owners were there for the judging. All the usual fare was there and the huge number of competitions and activities for all ages. Monaghan Veteran and Vintage Club members arrived with their tractors and there were other vintage displays in the field. There was a Heritage Display and craft display. The massive number of competitions in all sorts of activity had a very big number of entries and the judges had a very busy morning deciding on the winners in each of the categories. It would be impossible to name everything that happened and everything to be seen but it was another packed Tydavnet Show and the organising committee are to be commended for the work, time, energy and skills they invest in putting on this Show each year and implementing the programme on the day, irrespective of weather. It was a pity that the weather made their job that much more difficult and great praise is due to the manner in which they adjusted everything so that things would proceed as much near normal as possible. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who participated in any way.
