National Hall of Fame Awards

Hall Of FameNow in its 14th year the National Hall of Fame Awards is still one of the most popular Agri-Social events of the year where people from the Bovine, Equine and Ovine industries gather to acknowledge the achievements of their respective Nominees.
It is a very special night for the Nominees, because, they have been acclaimed by their breed Societies and fellow breeders, as the person who over the years has given their time, expertise, dedication and commitment for the betterment of their breed.

The National Hall of Fame Award is probably the greatest accolade a Society and fellow breeders can bestow upon one of its members.
The presentation of awards and banquet is held annually in Athlone and this year it is being held in the Sheraton Hotel Athlone May 1st 2016
Presentations by Mairead Lavery Editor of Irish Country Living (Irish Farmers Journal)
