A favourite for young and old, the Pets’ Corner at the Tinahely Show on Aug Bank Holiday Monday always delights the many competitors and visitors who come along to one of the largest displays in Ireland. Children in particular are always thrilled to get up close and experience such a wide variety of animals. For many of our younger visitors it has to be the first stop of the day.

All manner of pets can be entered, from small ponies, donkeys, rabbits, farm animals, pheasants, puppies, snakes to hairless cats. There are five categories you can enter your pets, including the newest and most unusual pet. So, if you have something a little bit different, come and show all the other pet lovers your special friend.

1. Best Furry Pet
2. Best Feathered Pet
3. Any Other Pet
4. Best Mother and Brood
5. Most Unusual Pet (New category)




People of all ages are encouraged to display their precious pets in this annual event. It’s only €3 to enter each cage with the chance to win great prizes. Each animal must have its own secure cage or pen and they should be clean with plenty of water and food
Entries are taken in advance or on the day in the Pets’ Corner tent. The schedules are available in the local shops in Tinahely or on the home page of this website. Judging commences at 12 noon sharp so get there early.


The Pets’ Corner is located directly to the right of the main entrance gate. If anybody would like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact the secretary as many hands make light work.
