No show for Iverk spectacle this year

by Edited by Jimmy Rhatigan

There’s no show like an Iverk Show but sadly, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic means there will be no curtain up this year.
Due to uncertainty surrounding the Covid Pandemic and the medium to long term national plans for festivals and events the Iverk Show committee has cancelled its 2021 Show fixed for August 28.
President, Jack Kearns, Chairman, Robert Dowley and members of the Iverk Show are bitterly disappointed to have to take this action for the second year in a row, a statement from show PRO Norman Storey explains.
Guided by recommendations of Government, HSE, Irish Shows’ Association and bearing in mind the health and safety of all our friends and patrons felt cancellation was the appropriate action.
Iverk, Ireland oldest agricultural show, has faced many challenges over nigh two centuries since it was founded in 1826.
The resilience of all involved will ensure that the 2022 show in Piltown on August 27 2022 will, once again, be a great success.
“On behalf of all our members we wish everyone a very healthy and safe year and thank you for making the Iverk Show one of the country’s great rural events,” the statement concludes.
