Glenties, better known for its McGill Summer School and tidy towns was thronged today for its annual Harvest Fair. 

In bygone days farmers would have brought in their animals and produce and sold them in the traditional way. Today you will find everything at the fair - "designer" bags, iPhones machine tools, every brand of hoodie under the sun, crepes, mussels and as you will see in the video a great flock of geese, ducks, turkeys, hens and whatever. which found a new home in Donegal
