Due to Covid-19, the Tinahely Show, where we usually display beautiful quilts from all over Ireland, has been cancelled for the year 2020.

While we won't have a physical quilt marquee this year, we would still love to see what everyone has been up in lockdown. For that reason we're creating a virtual 'marquee' here for everybody to enjoy!

There won't be any judges to make their usual helpful and encouraging comments or to choose prize winners. Instead, we're asking you, no matter where you are, to vote for your favourite quilts below.

The winning entry, chosen by you, will receive a €50.00 shopping voucher to spend at Slaney Quilting Studio.

Entries must be made between 15th July and 2nd August 2020. The public vote will open from the 3rd to 9th August 2020 through this website.

Please join us for quilty fun!


Entries from the 2019 'physical' Tinahely Quilt Marquee can be seen here.
