[quote="Senorita":2je1xg6u]What exactly is a puck fair :-8 ? Sorry, I've heard of it all right, but not sure what its about.[/quote:2je1xg6u] Three day festival in Killorglin, Co. Kerry. Basically centres around a wild goat who is captured, and crowned King Puck for the duration of the festival. It's a bit grotesque I suppose if I'm being honest, but he's paraded up through the town on the first day and put up in a cage on a tall stand at the top of the town, and brought down again on day three, again with a big parade. It's also a three-day fair, with cattle / horses etc being bought and sold. Then of course you have the knackery-stalls selling all kind of [email protected]!! Have a look on
