Chronicles Challenge - Fairs

The local fair was an important community event in many parishes throughout Ireland. It was also the day where farmers and traders were able to sell and purchase items. This day was a celebration in many communities as crowds gathered, goods were bought and sold and matches were made.  

Please consider using this prompt to create an XOChronicle about an Ancestor, a Building in Ireland or a Timeline Event  with the prompt in mind. Photos, stories and references from old newspapers and from the Folklore collection are all great sources for information. 

You can use the hashtag #ChroniclesChallenge with submission of your Chronicle.  You are also welcome to add your name at the end of the Chronicle as an IrelandXO volunteer if you wish.
