The 65th Fair, which is the second biggest in Munster, will have bundles of things on offer for what is seen as a great family day out with €50,000 worth of prize money and trophies over the course of the day.

The fair draws great interest for its livestock competitions which this year includes a All Ireland Angus Bull Championship qualifier.

“We expect about 7000 people,” said organising secretary Mary Barry.

Other events on offer include showjumping, horse, pony, sheep and goat classes which are very popular with children especially. There will also be crafts, homebaking and horticulture, also a food hall and craft fair.

A selection of the entertainment on offer includes live music, a baby show, dog and pet show, bouncy castles, slides, land zorbing, water walker activity which includes a large inflatable pool and the always, very popular, face-painting, especially as there is a prize for the best painted face.
