The Ballinasloe Horse Fair

Ah, the subtle bourgeois charm of the Fair...




Brilliant pictures, pilfered from the Bebo page of my mate Ronan. With his consent of course... Oh, to be a caption writer for the Sunday Independent!

A child with a full length fur coat... Now that was a lost photo op Ronan! All the same, they are some hilarious photos my friend. I would have posted more photos of the punters but there just isn't enough mind bleach to go around :)

I want that video.

John Cav said...

So do I Una, so do I... Not only for the title of the flick, which is genius, but also for the tagline:

"Thelma and Louise meet Rocky!"

And the plot:

A woman attempts to escape her domestic problems by fleeing to New York in search of her father. She finds him, and also new problems, some friendship, a romance, and an unexpected career as pro-boxer, to make ends meet.

Fudging brilliant!

It sounds like quite possibly the greatest movie video of all time. We must buy it. We shall buy it! To amazon I go! Tally ho! Ohhh why didn't I get it when I had the chance? Well I guess it doesn't matter because it was only on.. snigger... tape anyway :)

Forget the video, I want that girl's orange tracksuit - sweeheeet!

RapturePonies said...

i like the lime green/black/bluey slashed creation, aoife you and i could seriously paint the town in those outfits!

John Cav said...

Ronan: You shall regret that decision until the end of your days my friend. I'm just waiting for the glorious return of VHS!

Ladies: They were perhaps the most modest outfits on display that day, according to Ron's photos anyway :)
