“Dingle Puck Goat”


Singer goes to Puck Fair in Dingle and buys a goat, jumps on its back, grabs its horns and has a fantastic ride. They cross the sea and are attacked by fish. They return through Kerry; "old Puck ... as far as I hear he's in New York or in Boston"


Jim Carroll's notes to IRTravellers01: "Mikeen always associates this song with Puck Fair, which takes place annually in Kilorglin, Co Kerry on August 10th-12th. Each year a puck goat is caught, brought to town and proclaimed 'King of the Fair.'" - BS
