All-Ireland Sheep Shearing

Organisers ‘indebted’ to local businesses for All-Ireland Sheep Shearing support

Organisers of the Kepak All-Ireland Sheep Shearing & Wool Handling Championships 2017 have extended their thanks to the many local businesses that have shown support for the event and offered sponsorship.

“Our aim from the beginning has been to ensure that as well as offering a top class range of events that we can also showcase everything Roscommon has to offer including the first rate businesses and services that are available locally,” said Tomás Beades, Chairman of the All-Ireland Sheep Shearing Organising Committee. “It simply would not be possible to stage an event of this size without the support of our sponsors and we are truly grateful to all those who have offered sponsorship of the various events taking part across the June Bank Holiday weekend.”
