The Vendéen All-Ireland Championships will take place at the Teagasc Sheep 2015 event in Athenry on Saturday 20th June 2015.  This is a “showcase” event and there will be several breed societies holding their National Championships here including ourselves.  We would encourage you to support this event with top quality sheep as a good turnout will be important for the promotion of the breed.
