NEWBRIDGE House and Farm played host to another hugely successful Flavours of Fingal County Show.

The event has grown significantly since it began eight years ago and is now the biggest county show in the country.  

The weekend was a huge success for the thousands of visitors who enjoyed the entertainment, food and displays with 32,000 attending on the Saturday and 53,000 on the Sunday. 

It was a wonderful showcase of the best of what Fingal has to offer when it comes to farming and food production and the feedback after the event has been hugely positive.

The weather was perfect and ensured that the huge numbers who attended were able to enjoy the various outdoor events such as the livestock shows, equestrian events, living history, cycling velodrome, the fashion shows and the kids’ favourite attraction, the bouncing castles! 

The Fingal Village showcasing the work and services of the council was very successful in its new location in the walled garden and attracted a large number of visitors who were able to meet Fingal staff face to face. 

Interim chief executive of Fingal County Council AnnMarie Farrelly complimented everyone involved in the festival.

“Flavours of Fingal provides a spectacular showcase of the best that Fingal has to offer in terms of food, farming and entertainment and is an annual highlight for the community in Fingal and beyond,” said Ms Farrelly. 

“This remarkable event is testament to the months of preparation and excellent organisation on the day of the Fingal County Council staff across every department as well as volunteers, exhibitors and sponsors.

“I would like to 
thank everyone who helped make the weekend a resounding success.”

Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien said: “I would like to say well done to everyone who contributed to a brilliant Flavours of Fingal weekend.

“I had the opportunity to meet many of them including Fingal staff, farmers, exhibitors as well as volunteers and sponsors during the weekend.  

“This fantastic event has something to offer for everyone’s taste and I am already looking forward to 2020.” 

Meanwhile, the Fingal events team is busy preparing for the Swords Summer Festival, which takes place from July 19-21 at Swords Castle Park.
