The Aqua Dome was show casing at the Kingdom County Fair today Sunday 10th May 2015 and it was a great success! Great fun was had by all and for some of us we even managed to put our dancing shoes on!
Tralee Development Association was the organisation responsible for starting the Kingdom County Fair (Industrial Show) in 1948. In 1950 Macra na Feirme got involved and an Agricultural Show was incorporated into the Industrial Show resulting in the County Kerry Agricultural & Industrial Show we have today. In 1993 Fergie, the Duchess of York took part in the show jumping at the show and added a new dimension to the section, which now had household names such as Eddie Macken, Robert Splaine, Captain Con Power and the late Paul Darragh competing.
Over the last 60 years many shows have come and gone but the Kingdom County Fair enters it’s 60th year still holding it’s place as one of the premier shows in IRELAND.
We look forward to another great Kingdom County Fair show again next year!
