Sheep Section

We reintroduced our sheep section a few years ago, after a lapse of many years. Since then, it has grown year on year.

Dunmanway Show is delighted to host an All-Ireland Scotch Hoggett Ewe Championship again in 2018 with €500 in prizes. Entry is direct to Dunmanway Show. Please see our schedule for details.

We have classes for Scotch, Suffolk, Lowland Cross-bred sheep and Texel, along with a Butcher's Lamb class. We also have qualifiers for Bantry Show for the Hogget Ram and Aged Ram (Scotch).

Movement Documentation
All consignments of sheep being moved must be accompanied by the completed dispatch document. Individual details of each sheep in the consignment must be recorded.  Sheep from non-restricted flocks only can be moved to shows.  In the case of flocks restricted following diagnosis of scrapie, sheep possessing the ARR/ARR genotype only may be exhibited.  The movemnet of these ARR/ARR genotype sheep must be accompanied with the relevant movement permit (SCR/10), which can be obtained from the Local District Veterinary Office in the county where the flock is located.
