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 a 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 sees the celebration of Puck Fair’s 400 year anniversary, which will be promoted and celebrated as part of The Gathering.
