With over 13,000 visitors to the Durrow Scarecrow Festival each year, there clearly is something about scarecrows.
And the locals are very busy all summer gearing up for the popular festival. The festival now in its fifth year was launched last week and will take place from Sunday July 27 to Monday August 4. The event is organised by Durrow Development Forum with a focus of providing great value entertainment with music, family friendly shows and craft demonstration workshops.
