Puck Fair, Killorglin, Co. Kerry

by Sarah Taylor
(Victoria, Australia)

This festival has been running for hundreds of years and is a 3 day festival. They capture a wild puck goat and he is king of the fair for this period. There is a parade, horse fair and plenty of craic agus ceol over the 3 days. Generally people who have left the area, will return for the festival instead of over Christmas.
