Despite the dreary weather this summer there was a good turnout
for the show. The number of entries in several classes were down
on previous years, but the quality was still there.
It was extremely encouraging to see many new faces at the show
and as there were a number of activities for young people in the
adjoining Cooper Hall we were delighted to see some local families
coming along. Once again there were many prizes to be won in the
ballot. This year Drumbeg WI filled a table with some of the crafts
enjoyed by its members and this attracted attention among the
The PSNI brought along leaflets of interest on safeguarding one’s
home, safety in the home etc.
The following cups were awarded:

Drumbeg Cup, Best Young Person: Olly Ryder Moore
Vegetable Cup, Best Fruit or Vegetable: Barbara Farris
Crowe Cup, Floral Art: Sandra Abbott
Rose of Drumbeg, Special Class Prize: Eva Orr

Very grateful thanks to Hugh Crookshanks and the DRA team for
all the organisation involved in the show and to Colin Sloan,
local poet, who opened the show.
