Puck Fair, Killorglin, Co. Kerry

40.0070.00

This fair takes place in August every year in the town of Killorglin. The name translates from the Irish word “Poc” for male goat, where historically every year a group of people go into the mountains and catch a wild goat. The goat is brought back to town and is crowned “King Puck” by a local schoolgirl, “Queen of the Puck”. The goat is then put into a cage for 3 days during the fair, where the streets are lined with market stalls and then is released back into the wild.
