Waterford Country Fair
Waterford Country Fair is back for a 5th successive year and runs again at stunning Curraghmore House & Gardens, the ancestral home of Lord and Lady Waterford in Portlaw, Co Waterford, on Sunday, June 9, with festivities kicking off from 10am. The family-focused, fun-filled, day-long Fair celebrates all that is great about country life and living. Top class attractions include equestrian events and Cossack shows with the internationally-renowned Zcossacks team which has performed in Dubai, Australia and elsewhere around the world. This year, the voluntary organising team has joined forces with Waterford Hospice and Fair-goers are invited to buy a brick and support the Hospice’s fundraising drive to help finance a 20 bed hospice in the grounds of Waterford Regional Hospital. There’s live music and children’s entertainment, artisan food and the biggest ever craft display, a massive pet dog show, train rides through the grounds, tips from the experts on how to care for pets, poultry and so much more. Side saddle, Irish Pony Show, Show Jumping, Pony Games and hound classes begin from 10am, chief organiser, Joe Breheny, explained.
