The Iverk Show has been postponed until 2022 due to ongoing uncertainty around long-term national plans for festivals and events.

Guided by COVID-19 recommendations from the Government, HSE and the Irish Shows Association, the show committee has decided to cancel the 2021 event which was due to take place on 28 August.

Show president Jack Kearns, chair Robert Dowley and members of the committee have expressed bitter disappointment at having to cancel the event for a second year in a row.

The Iverk Show is Ireland’s oldest agricultural show, having been founded in 1826. The 2022 show is to be held in Piltown, Co Kilkenny, on Saturday 27 August.
