Oh no! Ginny’s gone dry!

With Ginny out of action we are now on the search for Imbolc Festival’s Next Great Goat.

Do you have a milking goat or know of a milking goat who would be interested in taking part in this revival of an age-old tradition? Are you in the Laois/Offaly, Slieve Bloom area and available on the 1st February 2015? If so, please email details to info@slievebloomassociation.com

Nothing sacrificial, just plain old milking. “More Father Ted than Wickerman” – Mark Graham, Festival Fit, The Irish Times

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ginny for her good humour and pleasant nature through the years.
