Meet the team


Andrew Short - Managing Director

Andrew started AJS Event Specialists over 20 years ago and since then it has expanded year on year. It started with the first Farm Machinery Show in Fintona over 15 years ago - now the largest in Ireland and has since branched out creating Farm Machinery Shows in Millstreet Co Cork, Cavan and Balmoral as well as the original Fintona show. He has also established Prime Time Music which showcases the extremely popular Jamboree In The Park which first began in 2011 and now runs multiple times a year, with 2016 premiering the all new Jamboree Oktoberfest in October and the Jamboree Sessions in November.

Owner of the Halfway House pub in Tattyreagh, Omagh, Andrew has also created AJ'S Event Catering which caters anything from private events to the Balmoral Show. Andrew's motto in life is 'If at first you don't succeed, try, try again' - a motto which has clearly stood him in good stead as he continues to drive AJS Event Specialists to succeed in every aspect of the business.
