Crowned Champions in All Kinds of Kilmacnogh Show Classes

Champions of over 50 categories for all types of competitors were crowned at the 50th Annual Kilmacanogue Show in Enniskerry.

It was fun for the whole family here, with classes open to people ages three or older in the equine, canine, baking, crafting, and agriculture categories.

Some of the big winners of horse show were Wicklow Schoolteacher Alicia Devlin Byrne, who took home the Show Hunter Championship rosette aboard The King’s Silver, which enthralled the judges in the ridden Irish draft class. Alicia also won the Heavy/Medium Weight Hunter class on Gort Town Dancer.

The Jack Roche Perpetual Trophy was presented to the riding class champion, Sarah Gadaloff, who rode the Camaro Gem to victory in the class for riders aged 13 to 16. The Muriel Williams Cup was awarded to Aurelia Binchi for her performance as the Leopard, which she won. Fancy dress class on board Pony Max, who came along in the form of a zebra.

The biggest winner at the dog show was probably Ciara-owned Death, which was named Dog the Judges Will Most Likely to Take Home, and in the baking and crafting area, starring Sarah Tilson and Etaoine Donavan, Sarah won three titles. And ataoin did two.
