I think he'll have a ball there Colette. Will you take me too ??? I've never been. Please, take my advice... No high heels Colette otherwise you will not enjoy your day .. if the shoes are run in now you may be OK but it's a long day and there are lots of people. Take plenty of photographs.

Did you treat your Mary Ann
to some dulse and yellowman,
At the Auld Lammas Fair in Ballycastle-O?

OHHHHHHHH MY GOD it was crammed packed and we walked about for over 6 hours and i didnt even get an alcoholic beverage if i hadnt have had the wee one with me i think id sat in a pub all day and enjoyed all the music that was going on it was wonderful.

Hold on got a bit of yella man stuck in my teeth, think i perfer puff candy to it and ive a big bag of candy floss to munch through too. will just sit back now and relax my back is still sore with the carrying of bags and walking.

Child wasnt that keen on it he hates stalls and walking but he was delighted with all the stuff he got bought to him.   ;D

He can go to his dad next year  ;)

Colette, local TV reported a very low turnout this year due to the bad weather.

Tell me, how on earth do you keep candyfloss in a big bag, and travel?

That's a brilliant report Colette. Since Ciaran is going with his Dad next year there'll be a seat in your car. Unless it's the intention to take a dog for a six hour walk may I join you ... we can all go to the pub immediately we arrive and sit there all day listening to the music. If you wont take me I think there may be a bus from Kilkeel, Co. Down that picks Ballynahinch people up early in the morning on its way to Ballycastle. I understand that there is music in every pub in the town and that there are some great musicians.

Congratulations Les :D I see you are now a Hero Member.

The answer to your question is simple Les. Colette did not eat the candy floss till she got home :D

Colette, if you didn't keep gallavanting all round the country you could have been one too by now :D

Like toffee apples, the stick is the most important part!   ;D

There were others doing business in Ballycastle I see:

Police seize fake goods at fair

Police have seized counterfeit goods worth 100,000 at the Oul Lammas Fair in Ballycastle.

The illegal goods seized during the two-day operation included clothing, sunglasses and football wristbands.

Police said a number of people would be reported to the Public Prosecution Service.
