The sheep sheering contest takes place during the Clonbur Country Fair with expert competitors from all over the world competing for cash prizes. While many of the sheep shearers are from Ireland and the UK, many come from as far away as Australia and New Zealand. It is incredible to watch them sheer a sheep without creating a nick or scratch on the sheep in "no time flat!" And the wool often comes off the sheep in one big uninterrupted wool blanket!
