Harvest in Ballynahinch

Fighting for King George

Back from a very enjoyable Sunday (we skipped the torrential Saturday) at the Ballynahinch Game and Harvest Festival in County Down. Recommended? Well, this was a new one for us, and compared to the Irish Game and Country Fair at Birr Castle seemed a bit smaller. Also the crowds were not as big (though the uncertain weather might have been a major factor in this). But, yes, we’ll go again – from fine food to living history, from country sports to music, everything was there. Grand day out all in all. And here’s a selection of images for your perusal:
