Three Agricultural Shows in Tipperary have received a funding boost.

Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys has allocated one million euro to support 122 Agricultural Shows right across the country- a 40 per cent increase on last year.

The Clonmel Show, which is taking place next week, was awarded the largest amount at just under 10,000 euro (€9,995).

Both the Bansha Agricultural & Industrial Show and the North Tipperary Agricultural Show, which takes place in Nenagh, were given €8,525 each.

The Irish Shows Association has welcomed the news stating that these shows bring great economic benefits to our rural towns and villages and deserve this funding.
