GALLERY: Saddling up for the 400th Spancilhill Fair

ESB Apprentice Moneypoint

The historic Spancilhill Horse Fair returned on Thursday having been cancelled for the last two years due to the pandemic.

It was almost mothballed permanently, due to insurance issues, but in April, an eleventh hour intervention by Clare County Council secured its future and paved the way for celebrations this year to mark the 400th anniversary of the world renowned horse fair.

Thursday’s event was as busy and colourful as ever, as our photos show.
