Mohill Horse Fair takes place each year on the Sunday of the October bank holiday weekend. This year Mohill Horse Fair will take place 29th of October. This is one of the oldest fairs in Ireland, with records dating to 1620. This is a unique fair in that it takes place on the streets of the town. Alongside the horse trading there will be a unique collection of stalls, combined with interesting odysseys and curiosities. There will also be demonstrations of the crafts associated with horses such as farriery, wheelwrighting and harness/saddle making, together with the traditional crafts of butter making, basketmaking etc. Mohill is located just off the M4 between Longford and Carrick on Shannon..
