Sheep Herding Demonstrations

A vital part of Celtic history and society were based almost entirely on pastoralism and the raising of cattle or sheep. Watch Fort Lupton, Colorado expert and sheep whisperer Cathy Balliu as she does incredible demonstrations of how well-trained dogs can herd sheep, with a shepherd’s simple commands. Approximately a hundred Irish farmers still herd sheep in this manner, many of whom compete in annual sheep-herding competitions.

Sheep herding demonstrations will take place near the Clontarf Pub tent on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday demo times are 11:15am, 1:00pm and 2:45pm. 
Sunday demo times are 11:45am, 1:30pm and 3:15pm.
Each demo is 30 minutes.
