THOUSANDS descended on Ballybeggan Racecourse on Sunday for another great Kingdom County Fair.

“We were very lucky with the weather,” said Organising Secretary, Mary Barry. “Saturday was a disaster and we thought we’d be rained out, but Sunday was a great day, thankfully,” said Mary.

The venue had something for everyone with an area of bouncy castles and ‘hurdy-gurdys’ to keep young children entertained, food stalls, arts and crafts stands, a bonny baby competition, not to mention all the animal competitions going on.

Of course there were many agricultural stands and horse enthusiasts were spoiled for choice with the amount of equestrian events taking place.

There was a stiff breeze but everybody was enjoying the sunshine and agreed the show is still going strong after 65 years.
