St Brigids GAA Club will host the 2017 All-Ireland and All Nations Sheep Shearing and Wool Handling Championships on the June Bank Holiday weekend ( June 3rd and 4th ).
This will be the 2nd occasion that St Brigids GAA Club hosted this event. The club hosted the 1997 championship.
The sheep shearing and wool handling will see competitors coming from all over Ireland and the All Nations will have visiting teams from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and France
In addition to the attraction of the sheep shearing competitions, there are many other attractions.
The success of the event heavily depends the support of the sheep farmers in the area and on the volunteer spirit of the community. It also is very dependent on the sponsorship of local and national businesses. The event presents a major opportunity for businesses both local and national to sell and promote their products and services.
Most importantly the weekend promises to be memorable weekend.
Looking forward to see you at the event.
