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.
