A great day to grab a bargain. Even though it was the last day, it was quite mucky. Nothing like getting your hands dirty. Wear old clothes. Great exhibits to entertain every age group. Great to see all ages and counties with Galway;s Joe Canning.

Great day out as always. Logistics of getting in and out top dollar. We used the park & ride. Brilliant service. An annual event not to be missed. Proud to be Irish today. What a great country we have.
