People agthered at Dunmanway in West Cork to take a loot at what was on offer ahead of tomorrow's horse fair.
Residents of Dunmanway have been celebrating Ballabuidhe Horse Fair and Races since 1615 and this year is no different.
The Ballabuidhe Horse Fair kicks off tomorrow in the West Cork village offering over thirty races of which about half are trotting and sulky.
The remaining races are flat races for ponies and horses, specially bred for speed and agility.
These are not only exciting for the spectator, but have proved a valuable training ground for aspiring jockeys alike.
Videographer Dan Linehan met with some of today's visitors at Dunmanway.
