Fine Gael Senator Frank Feighan has confirmed that Boyle Summer Show is set to receive a payment of approximately €5,000 to assist with its show next year.
“This funding is part of a national allocation announced by the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring, which will benefit qualifying agricultural shows throughout the country in 2020.
“The funding is being administered through the Irish Shows Association (ISA) and the allocations will help Agricultural Shows to help meet the financial challenge associated with delivering their events.
“Agricultural and summer shows like the one in Boyle are hugely important to the rural economy.
“We know the economic benefit they bring to our local towns and villages and I commend the dedicated volunteers who work so hard on making the shows happen every year.”
