THE weather was kind for the annual Blennerville Windmill threshing festival on Sunday which saw big crowds enjoy a great family day out.

Running since 1989, it’s one of the oldest steam threshing and vintage car display in Kerry and there were some impressive machines in attendance.

There was a large model train exhibition, bouncy castle, flour making, dog show, hoover craft and much more.

Blennerville windmill threshing was started by Mike Curran. the miller at the windmill for 32 years, with Billy Mason, Timmy Kerins and Paddy O’Shea .

For the last 27 years, big crowds from far and near have come to see the steam threshing which is well supported by the local business and locals alike. Scroll down for photos…
