Visit from Minister Michael Ring

 

We were delighted to today receive a visit to the Showgrounds from Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Michael Ring T.D..

He was joined by John Perry T.D., Tony McLoughlin T.D., Senator Imelda Henry and Hubert Kearns.

 

They had a look around the Sean Fallon Centre to see the ongoing works at the Showgrounds.

They also met with some of the kids who were enjoying the fantastic facilites at this week's Easter Camp.

 

The Minister was presented with the recently published book 'Stories of the Showgrounds' detailing the rich history of the famous venue by author Kevin Colreavy.
