It’s the Shane’s Castle Game Fair - virtually

Northern Ireland’s traders, guest houses and hotels look forward each year to the weekend of the Shane’s Castle Game Fair for the trade and sheer buzz it creates in the area.

With interest in the fair this year from trade and public from all over Ireland and the UK ,the weekend looked like being the busiest ever.

However, with Covid 19 continuing to plague the country, the decision had to be been taken to postpone the event.

However, the Great Game Fairs of Ireland team had an innovative contingency plan in place!
