New Movie Star at FairyFortFarm

Princess - "The Quiet Hour"

Princess, our well known popular goat is making a name for herself on the Big Screen, with her role in the blockbustin ‘Frenzy Films’ production of the Stéphanie Joalland film The Quiet Hour.

The film tells the story of…
…a feisty teenage girl, in a remote part of rural, post-apocalyptic England, now occupied by unseen alien invaders, who sets out on a desperate attempt to fight back a group of bandits and defend her parents’ farm, their remaining livestock, and the solar panels that are the key to keeping them safe from extraterrestrials. If she doesn’t succeed, she will lose her only source of food and shelter; if she resists, she and her helpless blind sibling will be killed.

Romancing the Fairies and Leprechauns

leprechaun fiddleWhen the the sky is dark and cloudy, the Little People come out to play. They are searching for gaiety and excitement. No better way to get them jigging and dancing round than to play them a few tunes, or sing them a few songs. They love it, they can’t resist ! They jump and cartwheel around the fort. Most of all they run in and out along the thin trees that cross over the moat, from one side to the other.
Sometimes they join in with their tiny little fiddles. They can even play it while standing on their head. The enchanting strains leave you spell bound !  This is a night to remember and visitors talk about it as the highlight of their holidays.

The stone door is facing the West and though they can go straight through it, some of the surrounding stones are disturbed ! This is caused by the galloping of their little horses, as they come and go throughout the year !

A night with the Fairies and their enchanting magic is surely not to be missed !

New Born Chick needs extra care

New Born Chick. I’m typing this with one finger as my other hand is cradling a cold chicken. it fell out of its moms nest with its sister, whom we’ve warmed back to normality. we put it back with its mom but this one is proving a little more demanding. I’m using a hot water bottle for it. It’s slowly improving. Cute little thing.

French holiday makers take up hurling in Tipperary

On a recent visit to the farm we had some French guests who loved watching the game of hurling (if you don’t know what hurling is see video below for quick introduction). Of course they had to go out and buy some hurleys to practice their skills.

Under the expert coaching of young Ben, they soon learned the basics. Who knows maybe someday in the future we will see France contesting the All Ireland Hurling Final!
