Newgrange News - Mullagh Fair Day

If your hotel accommodation is booked and you are trying to find a taste of old Ireland, then the Mullagh Fair Day is just for you. This annual fair allows visitors and locals alike to celebrate a traditional fair as it would have been done by their ancestors.

The event is set to take place on Sunday 11 September, from 12 noon until 19:00. This year, you can expect street entertainment and music that will have your feet tapping.

Falconry and a reptile display will wow everyone both young and old, while the dog show will also produce some memorable moments. Dad can head off to see the vintage cars and machinery on display, while the entire family will enjoy the traditional farmyard and the displays of traditional skills.

Farmers can look out for the buying and selling of cattle, horses, pigs, sheep and poultry. Then, of course, comes the main attraction of the farmers market and craft market.

There will be hundreds of stalls on display at the Mullagh Fair, which has become one of the biggest and best in the north east. This is the perfect opportunity for you to shop for some uniquely Irish souvenirs and gifts to take to your family and friends back home.

As an added bonus, you can feel good in the fact that money raised at the event is reinvested into the community - so you are doing your bit in building a better future for the locals. If you are interested in hosting a stall there, then please be aware that you will need a permit for the event. If you do not acquire one, then you will be unable to display your treasures on the Main Street.

Mullagh Fair Day promises to be one of the best things to do in Meath during this time, so be sure to include it in your itinerary before you leave. Book your Meath hotel accommodation now so that you don't miss out on this fun, family event!
