Boot Sales-Fethard and Rathcormack

We will be in Ireland this coming weekend. Our plan is to go to the Rathcormack Boot sale on Sunday the 4th. I believe it is an early opening and we plan to be there early. We have not been to the Fethard Boot Sale but would like to go this year. As I understand it, Fethard sale is Sunday the 4th and Monday the 5th as it is a Bank Holiday.

Questions: It looks like it's a bit over an hour drive from Rathcormack to Fethard. Any opinions about doing Rathcormack on Sunday and driving to do Fethard the same day? Or would you recommend waiting until Monday to go to Fethard? Is Sunday or Bank Holiday Monday better at Fethard?

Obviously, I need a quick reply as we are leaving Wednesday. Thanks for your input.

Can't help with your question, I'm afraid - just popping in to recommend McCarthy's in Fethard for lunch or dinner. What a pub!!


Be sure to look out for the Sheelanagigs in/around the town; I spent a couple of days/nights there last summer - great little place, such friendly folk!

Have a super time :-)
