Millstreet in Cork is the setting for the Annual Spring Horse Fair.

In 1965 the town of Millstreet in north county Cork came to a standstill for the Annual Spring Horse Fair.

The Fair is not only a time for bargaining and dealing. It is also a social occasion that continues to attract the crowds, young and old, to the town.
