History of the Show
As a background to how this Show was established, Glenamaddy was historically known for its very well attended annual ploughing events in the 1930's, through the 40's and early 50's, but hadn't held a ploughing event for over 60 years. We got together with an energetic group of local volunteers from Glenamaddy and surrounding parishes in North Galway to change that. We reformed the old Glenamaddy & District ploughing club, under the auspices of the Galway County Ploughing organisation and the National Ploughing Association, and the event is now an official NPA qualifier on the annual calendar. Our ploughing championships, coupled with the largest indoor cattle show in Ireland, which takes place in the largest indoor arena in the West of Ireland, will ensure that the Show attracts the public and becomes a fixture on the farming calendar across the region.

Glenamaddy Show Song
The 'Glenamaddy Show Song', performed by Julie Healy and written by the late James Shevlin, is a dedicated piece that encapsulates the essence and history of the Glenamaddy Agricultural Show. Through its lyrics and melody, the song provides listeners with a comprehensive understanding of the event's significance and traditions within the Glenamaddy community.
