My best #showgroundsmoments , not technically in the showgrounds, was one of my first memories. I was only 4 years old, in bed and my parents woke me up and took me outside on the street to see hundreds of people on pearse road singing and celebrating, when the bus came by I'll never forget Declan Boyce and his long hair with the cup on the top of the bus. It was such an exciting time and have loved @sligorovers and going to the showgrounds with my dad since then.
