On the 17th of October the All Ireland & UK Mushroom Conference and Trade Show took place in the Hillgrove Hotel in Monaghan, Republic of Ireland. It was a lively show, with a lot of interested growers from all over the Island and the rest of the United Kingdom. The trade show was alternated by lectures in the same hotel. On Friday the 18th there were a number of farm walks. Most of the guests decided to attend the farm walk at Eamon Murrays farm in Lurgan, Northern Ireland, because Annaghmore Mushrooms used the opportunity for a festive opening of their new packhouse.
