Hi Everybody,

Just to bring you all up to date. We now have 15 traders confirmed. They cover everything from material sales to WWII. Traders will have access to the room on Friday evening to set up and we will be having a bit of a party on Saturday night after the event, all welcome. We will be running ads in both the Irish Examiner and the Evening Echo the week before the fair. The Evening Echo will also be running a feature on the fair next week. Cork's 96FM and RedFM will also be running ads in the week before the event. The In addition to this 9 re-enactment groups and societies will have recruiting desks on the day and will be providing a wee bit of atmosphere...

We are looking at April to run the next fair and will keep you all informed.

Cheers

Martin

Hello, just an update on the fair which is on saturday week,November 21.

Parking is available at the rear of the Metropole hotel,on patricks quay,there are 3 parking lots. Costs are 8 euro for the whole day,or I believe 2 euro per hour. They are open from 8 am and close at 6.30 pm.
Dealers and exhibitors may unload at the front entrance of the hotel at MaCurtain street and then proceed to the parking lots at the rear of the hotel on patricks Quay.

You may view a map of the location at our wesite at http://munstermilitariafairs.com/

If you are arriving by train ,exit the station turn left and walk approximately 400 yards,the hotel is on your left hand side.
By Bus, the rear of the hotel will be visible across the river from the bus station on Parnell square( Sign reads Gresham Metropole Hotel). Walk across the bridge and you will be there in 5 minutes.
Thanks for your time .

Hello all , well we had quite a bit of rain here in cork last night. The fair is going ahead as planned.The Metropole hotel is on high ground and all ok.
Only the very low lying part of the west of the city has been flooded and that is now dissapating rapidly,so all will be ok for tommorow.
See you all then.
