  1. Local fairs April 8th 1938
    A fair is a market periodically held for the sale of cattle and other products of a district. Fairs are held weekly, monthly or quarterly.
    In this locality cattle fairs are held in Macroom, Coachford, Bandon and Ballincollig once a month. The fixtures are so arranged that no two fairs fall on the same day. This arrangement gives buyers and sellers the opportunity of attending all fairs.
