Puck Fair gets its goat up - at least until 6pm today
At the end of his mighty three-day reign, the King of Puck Fair will be unceremoniously dethroned today.
It will be a sharp fall from grace for the mountain goat who was only crowned on Thursday by Caitlin Horgan, a student of Scoil Mhuire in Killorglin, Co Kerry, this year's Queen of Puck.
The crowds cheered in welcome as the king took his place on the stand, where he will remain overlooking the town and soaking up his new surroundings for a few more hours until 6pm today.
Organisers expect to welcome more than 100,000 visitors over the three-day duration of the annual festival in the Kerry town.
Street entertainment for all ages will once again be provided by Wobbly Circus and Kingdom Party Pals among others today, while 'The Elvis Spectacular Show' kicks off the late-night entertainment.
