98th Annual Show and Sale of Pedigree Registered Galway Sheep Monday 21st September 2020

Galway Sheep Breeders’ Show and Sale 2020

The Galway Sheep Breeders’ Annual Show and Sale takes place in Athenry Mart on Monday September 21st with the Show at 11 o’clock and the Sale at 1 p.m.

The show will follow all HSE guidelines regarding Covid-19 with regard to social distancing. A new feature for this year will be the facility for bidding online via the "Mart Eye". Further details can be found on the Mart Website https://www.marteye.ie/

All sheep entered must be pure bred and registered with Sheep Ireland in accordance with the Society’s rules. The Breeders are hoping to meet old and new friends from all parts of the country on the day, which is a traditional and integral part of Ireland’s sheep breeding year for nearly a century.

In recent years the Breed has enjoyed a remarkable resurgence as flock owners are beginning to re-discover the many fine traits of the Galway Breed including docility and prolificacy.

The Galway Sheep is Ireland’s only native breed and the sheep are eligible for payments under the GLAS scheme subject to certain conditions. Galway Rams are suitable for crossing with lowland and hill flocks as they bring length, height and strength to a crossbred flock.
