The National Launch 2023 took place at the Butterfield Estate as the Tullamore Show were delighted to welcome Avril and William R Gubbins back to Co. Offaly.

The Gubbins Family have had many success stories at Tullamore Show from Supreme Champion in 1992 on their first visit to the event and again in 2002 and 2012.

The National Launch was attended by Show personal and representatives of FBD as both parties strive to continue their strong and successful alliance.
