Cllr Johnny Healy Rae heavily criticised what he calls the ‘tree hugging’ people for their mistreatment and abuse of Puck Fair Committee members during this year’s festival on the question of animal rights.

The soaring temperatures in early August forced the committee to temporarily remove the goat from its scaffold to the shade. This produced national outcry with people insisting the tradition is archaic and should be done away with.
