The travellers’ wagons came to Kanturk on the way to Cahermee Fair in Buttevant which is held at the end of July. The best-decorated wagon won a prize there. They would arrive in Kanturk from the late spring on, from the direction of Sally’s Cross, and often stay for a month or so while the children were prepared for Holy Communion. After Cahermee Fair they would head for Puck Fair in Killorglin. [Rosemary Canavan, ‘Storyspace Exhibition’, Kanturk Arts Festival 2012]
