Bantry Agricultural Show - Cattle

Important notice to all animal owners involved in showing animals.
The Irish Shows Association would advise all animal owners who have their animals insured to have the insurance cover extended to cover them while showing animals at shows, we understand that it costs very little or nothing at all depending on who you have insurance cover with.

If you are one of the few who don’t have cover we would advise that you think about putting it in place for this purpose it may well be worthwhile.

The reason for us giving you this advise is to protect yourself in the event of your animal lashing out, and injuring someone or damaging someone’s property, if that were to happen, and it is established that your animal was out of control you may be held responsible, or partly responsible for and injury or damage caused & may end up paying all, or part of any settlement reached.

ALL REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN TO ENSURE SAFETY AT THE SHOW
