North Dublin Leaderboard 2014
The North Dublin Horticultural Societies Association is a group of 10 horticultural societies in North Dublin who hold an Annual Show each year. The exhibitor of the year trophies are awarded to the exhibitors who obtain the highest aggregate of points in open clases in the 10 shows in the categories of “Vegetables & Fruit” and “Flowers & Pot Plants”. Points are determined on the basis of 3, 2, 1 for 1st, 2nd & 3rd respectively. The results are added to a leaderboard after each show and the prizes are presented to the winners at the “End of Season Show” in October.
