Fearless jousting knights, displays from birds of prey and a delicious selection of artisan food will all be on display at the Waterford Country Fair next month.

Thousands of people are due to attend the fair on Sunday, June 11, which this year will help grant wishes to children with cystic fibrosis through Make-A-Wish Ireland. It takes place in the grounds of Curraghmore House, Portlaw, with shuttle buses planned from Waterford.

The day-long event starts at 10am and includes sheep dog trials, poultry displays and pony club games qualifiers for the Royal Dublin Horse Show.

Gundog guru Keith Matthews makes his first appearance, and attendees can try fly fishing and archery, according to committee chairperson Jo Breheny.
