A fundraising table quiz was held in Tutty's Bar in support of the upcoming Hollywood Fair.

There was plenty of support for the table quiz as local residents eagerly look forward to the return of the festival after a break in 2018. This year's Hollywood Fair takes place on Saturday, August 10 and Sunday, August 11. The pre-1950s rural heritage theme of the fair has proven a huge hit with everyone and organisers are asking everyone to embrace the spirit of the occasion by dressing up in pre-1950s attire.

On the Saturday Bishop Eamonn Walsh will co-celebrate an old-style Latin Mass in St. Kevin's Church at 6 p.m. with local clergy. A slow-bicycle race and a dramatic re-enactment of the flooding of the Poulaphouca Lake will also take place.

A huge turnout is expected for Sunday, August 11 with numerous exhibitions of traditional crafts such as blacksmithing, stone cutting and butter making.
