Make sure to keep your diaries free for this year’s Athlone Agri-Show which takes place on June 26. It is hoped that this year’s show will be even bigger than last year, with new attractions such as Made in the Midlands, Quirky Cake Competition, Foraging Walk, and Vintage Thrashing to name but a few.
