Virginia Agricultural Show is the latest to announce that its cancellation due to concerns over COVID-19.

The Cavan show is a firm farmer favourite and news of its cancellation will sadden many in the agriculture community.

“The committee concluded with a heavy heart that it is not feasible to continue to plan this year’s event,” a statement from the show committee reads.

“Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic it is not possible to successfully run the show safely and to the high standards that everyone is accustomed to.”

On a more cheerful note, the organisers confirmed that they are already planning for the show to go ahead in 2022.
