Annascaul Walking Festival 2016
The Annascaul Walking Festival (organised by the Annascaul Walking Club) will take place over the October Bank Holiday Weekend (October 28th – 31st). Starting with a night walk on Friday 28th, the Festival also features a choice of several walks to suit all abilities on Saturday and Sunday. The walks explore both well known and lesser known historical routes on the Dingle Peninsula and incorporate the history and archaeology of the area.
Ballinclare fair takes place next Sunday 2nd October. The fair is a good family day out with a sheep show, best horse on the day, pet show, mutton pies, bouncy castle & lots more. It attracts crowds of people. There are stalls and all types of animals from horses to chickens to sheep. There will be a cake sale in the community centre held by the Annascaul ICA. You can enjoy a fantastic puppet show (children must be accompanied by an adult). Live music in all pubs.
