Traditionally in Ireland, the working farm dog has always been the border collie and this is still the case today. The black and white pooches with their low, loping, stride are still a familiar sight on the backroads and laneways of the countryside moving their woolly charges from one pasture to the next. Other herding breeds are occasionally used, such as the New Zealand huntaway and the Australian kelpie. A well trained dog with the right temperament is worth its weight in gold to a farmer.

As this is going to be McCambridge’s biggest ever fair, I thought it might be worthwhile to suggest some producers for you to seek out. The problem when visiting a large fair can be, where do you start?
There was an amazing sense of nostalgia as I had dinner in this relatively new restaurant on the main street in Loughrea. The building was originally a private house owned by the O’Loughlin family and on many, many, nights in the early seventies I practised all my best moves and chords as we played hits by people like Rory Gallagher, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, and many more in what we thought was the best rock band on the planet. The band had the rather unusual name of Skab Law. How the neighbours put up with the deafening levels of guitars and drums is a credit to their tolerance.
