The Heavy Horse Show will return to the streets of Ballycastle this month as part of the Ould Lammas Fair! The show has been a longstanding tradition at the popular event, which is Ireland's oldest fair.


There are two sections to the show with Clydesdales in one, and traditional cobs in the other with a sub section for mini cobs.



Following the show, the public will be treated to the spectacle 'parade of horses', as the proud owners lead their horses through Ballycastle town. This year the event will also feature the inaugural 'Martin Gillan Memorial Tractor Run'.


Vintage tractors and cars will travel from Pat McKiernan's field at Whitepark Road, and make their way through Ballycastle to the car park at Sheskburn House.



North Antrim Vintage Club have organised the event in memory of well-known County Antrim man Martin Gillan, who along with the late Stanley Jamieson, ran both the horse show and the vintage vehicle run for many years.


During both parades there will be a bucket collection for Marie Curie, a cause which was close to the hearts of both Martin and Stanley.


The Lammas Fair Heavy Horse Show will be held on Saturday 26th August at 11.00am in the Sheskburn House car park, Mary Street.
