John Clifford at a Larne Hirin' Fair

Bringing the tradition back to life, Larne Folklore Society recreates the flavour of an old Hiring Fair, with traditional music played by local musicians, people dressed in turn-of-the century costume and a horse-trading re-enactment.

Local poet, John Clifford, reads from his poem: ‘Larne Hirin’ Fair’. (Broadcast: 27/06/1977)
