Newtown Dog Show & Family Fun Day

Monday 1st May 2017

Spring is here so it is the time of year when our four-legged friends start looking forward once again to the Newtown Dog Show and Family Fun Day. The event, now in its 9th successful year, will again be held in Barry’s Field, Newtown on Bank Holiday Monday, May 1st. This year the organising committee have announced that all funds raised will be split equally between two local groups, Arra Rover Football Club and Burgess/Duharra Camogie Club, both of which have such a positive impact upon the lives of the local people.

Show Classes: €4 per class

  1. Best Large Breed
  2. Best Terrier
  3. Best Working / Utility Dog
  4. Best Small Dog
  5. Best Gundog
  6. Best Rescue Dog
  7. Best Dog
  8. Best Bitch
  9. Dog with Waggiest Tail
  10. Child’s Best Friend (for owners 10 years and under)

€3 for Dog Agility

€10 for 3 classes

Fresh water is available for dogs

Once again the always entertaining Dog Agility Ring will be a feature of the show. The draw for a tractor trailer of logs will take place on the day, so watch out for the draw cards in the local shops and businesses, with lines again only €2 each and 3 for €5. Sponsors and backers, both old and new, have again been generous in their support and there will be lots of games, stalls, draw prizes and activities for all the family, as well as refreshments available all day. All the usual favourites will be at the show again, including the Kids’ Bungee Jumps and Pony Rides.

As before, entry to Barry’s Field for the show will be free and it is hoped that the bucket collection at the gate will again be generously supported for the benefit of the two very deserving causes.

Even at this late stage, the show committee are happy to hear from anyone who would like to discuss booking the limited remaining space for their stalls, or from volunteers to help with the many duties required to ensure everything runs to plan on the day. Please contact committee on either 086 0822258 or 086 1657103.

Mark your diaries for Bank Holiday Monday, May 1st to ensure you don’t miss out on the great fun day for the whole family, including your four-legged friend.

Both the deserving causes would welcome your support. So get those pooches pampered, brushed and spruced up, ready to show them off on their big day, and keep your fingers crossed for yet another sunny Newtown Dog Show.
