Craft fair in Kilkenny City. 10:30am ishy.

People are setting up in place for a tourist rush in July and August. If you didn’t get your spot early you would be on the periphery away from the main throng.

    A colorful shot! Based on the clothing, it looks a little chilly.

      Noooo, not really. I had a meeting so was in a 3-piece light wool suit. Last week I’ve needed a coat.

      • Kelly says:

        Well I haven’t had on a jacket or long sleeves (other than maybe a raincoat) in over a month. We’ve already warmed up around here. And even if I could wear wool (it eats me alive!), we just don’t have the climate for it.

        • V.H says:

          Oh you wouldn’t do that here. There were days this last month that were wind-chill colder than winter.
          The suit is lined, so it doesn’t actually come into contact with the skin. But I doubt it would cause issues as it’s totally smooth, no hairy bits like a jumper at all.

    Yes! I’m with Kelly, so colorful. Just adding those tents in makes everything contrast nicely. What a fun set up…I love me a craft fair. 🙂 Is the craft fair year round or just during the summer. I’m assuming they’re all locally crafted goods.
    I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I liked visiting Kilkenny a lot when I was there. It’s a pretty city, and there was so much to see and do, plus that castle is something.

    • V.H says:

      You know where I took it then in relation to the castle. It was maybe 20 yards behind me.
      But no, I’d not heard you say about Kilkenny. I know you went to Waterford.

      I think they have to have some sort of selling every week to keep the market in existence. I know the last Government tried to rationalise the system and ran into the real bloody-mindedness of the Irish. There was place that had not had a market in 50 year that suddenly discovered a fundamental need for one.
      My only issue with a ‘craft’ fair is it becomes ‘precious’, and those involved think they are a higher species to other stall-holders.
