King Puck Flies to Auld Lammas Fair

One of Ireland's traditions is the crowning of a goat every year at the Puck Fair in Killorglin, Co. Kerry. In 1979 King Puck was flown to Belfast in order to attend the Auld Lammas Fair in Ballycastle, Co. Antrim. This marked the beginning of a cooperation between these two fairs and the Ballinasloe Horse Fair, which has continued ever since.

Deirdre Purcell reports for RTÉ News on King Puck's journey on  21 August 1979.
