Dethronement Parade and Ceremony

Puck Fair Stand- The Square

Parade Route:  Iveragh Road – Upper Bridge Street – The Square – Lower Bridge Street – The Bridge

NOTE: Upper Bridge Street will be CLOSED to pedestrians from 5PM to 6:30PM

The Closing Parade – 5.30pm on Scattering Day /Aug. 12th – culminates in the Ceremonial Dethronement of King Puck, and his subsequent release back to freedom in the Kerry Mountains. Assembly for this Parade is at the Fire station; it then travels along the Iveragh Road to the Plaza, from where it turns right onto Upper Bridge Street and onto the Square. At the Puck Stand, the King is brought down from his lofty perch to abdicate his brief reign, and say good-bye to his loyal subjects. He is placed onto his Float; the Parade continues its journey back over the Bridge to the Fishery. From here, King Puck is fully relieved of his duties and the Goat Catcher takes him away, returning him to the mountainy ranges overlooking Killorglin, from where he had been captured a few weeks previously.
