More About This Title Puck Fair: A History
The history of Ireland's oldest fair, which celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2013
Puck Fair, Ireland's oldest festival, was established by a royal patent in October 1613, granted to the Welsh planter, Jenkyn Conway, of Killorglin. It first became famous, however, as a result of the parading and display of a male goat, which is awarded a crown and named as the King of the Town. 2013 will see the celebration of Puck Fair’s 400 year anniversary, which will be promoted and celebrated as part of The Gathering.
