    King of the mountains!

    by orlikins Written Nov 18, 2002

    About 20 miles outside Killarney is a village called Killorglin. Every August there is a Puck Fair there. When you arrive in Killorglin from Killarney,you will see a statue of a goat before you turn at the bridge to go into the town. A goat is "captured" from the surrounding mountains and brought down to Killorglin to be crowned King Puck. After the festival, it is set free again.
