Who can fail to be charmed by a lovable, friendly donkey? Certainly not Castlereagh man Philip Titterington who has stepped into the role of Director with The Great Game Fairs of Ireland.  Philip’s passion for all things equestrian encouraged him to add a ‘Donkey Village’ to the impressive list of attractions at this year’s Irish Game Fair & Fine Food Festival at Shanes Castle.  The innovation added a popular and particularly child-friendly extra to the show which this year boasted a larger than ever equestrian dimension. Philip is pictured with Ann McHenry from The Donkey Breed Society Northern Ireland and the scene-stealing seven-year-old donkey, ‘Blossom’.

The Irish Game Fair & Fine Food Festival is supported by TourismNI and Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council.
