Far from a washout

The wet weather did little to deter the crowds at Saturday’s Martinborough Fair.

Convenor Vivienne O’Reilly said although the sun did not materialise, the sales did. “The stallholders said they had great days.”

She said the crowd was not on par with previous blue-bird fair days where it was difficult to manoeuvre, but there was a general energy and good feeling.

“People weren’t complaining about the weather, they just got on with it.” O’Reilly also signalled a potential change to the fair schedule – with the exception of covid-19 restrictions last year, is typically held on the first Saturday in February and March.

“We will be gathering information and review the timeframe for future fairs. By the end of April we will have an answer.”
