Ushering in Puck Fair

The Killorglin Pony Show is a fixture in the calendar of events Launeside for over the past four decades and it gently ushers in the world famous and centuries old, Puck Fair.

Apart from the jumping at the show there are also Pet shows, donkey derby and family fun on the grounds on the day.

Show’s Altruistic Side

The pony show also has an altruistic side to it and funds have been raised and presented to a range of Kerry charities by the organising committee down through the years.

The show is affiliated to Showjumping Ireland – the governing body of showjumping in Ireland under which all affiliated competitions are held.
