It’s the go-to guide for all involved in agricultural shows and has over 280 pages of show dates, contact information and details of national championships taking place in 2023.

It also contains lists of relevant judges. The 2023 edition was launched by John Cahalan, chief commercial officer at FBD Insurance. Speaking at the launch, Cahalan wished all of the ISA member shows every success for the season ahead and emphasised the importance of shows in rural Ireland, not just economically, but socially and culturally within communities the length and breadth of the country.

National president of the ISA, Ray Brady, congratulated the national secretary, Jim Harrison, and the ISA team on producing an excellent publication.
