Welcome to the Dog Section of the Royal Meath Show. Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our show last year – we hope you all enjoyed it. For photos of the day, please visit our Facebook page through the link above. We will also post regular updates about classes, sponsors and events on the day on the Facebook page.
Due to the Eyre Court show not taking place this year, we regret we will not be running the Native Irish Breed Qualifier class this year at the Royal Meath Show. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Dog Show will commence at 1.30pm sharp. We will begin taking registrations on the day from Midday. We currently do not take any registrations via online/phone/social media. Please come along on the day and register your dogs at the registration tent ringside.
