Millstreet Show jumping
Millstreet Horse Show is a family run show organised by the Duggan Family, headed up by Noel C. The show is now under the capable directorship of his son Thomas Duggan.
The name “Green Glens” is derived from the title of a favourite song of Noel C’s – “The Green Glens of Antrim;” an appropriate title for the exquisite setting located in Millstreet parish, in the barony of Duhallow, in the County of Cork, in the heart of Munster! The 40 shades of green magically changing into various shades of russet golden colour in Autumn have enchanted tens of thousands of visitors over the past 30 years.
Since 1973, the Green Glens has gradually grown and developed into a truly magnificent international venue; playing host to events including the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest, world boxing, Disney on Ice, concerts, political events, conventions, agricultural shows and Horse Shows.
