An exciting event held every September.
Here in Ireland we are lucky to have the best oysters along our shores and our oyster festivals have become major tourist attractions both here and accross the water. In Co. Down you can join the fun at the Annual Hillsborough Oyster Festival - live entertainment, gala ball, the oyster eating championship and much more - a great day out in the heart of the Mourne Mountains.
Colin Shirlow has been the champion for nearly a decade eating 212 oysters in 3 minutes!!!!
