Smuggling courses and Border controls in Keshcarrigan this year

Keshcarrigan has always had a quirky parade each year and 2019 should prove no different with a very topical hard border being set up in the village.

With all the talk of Brexit and the possibility of a hard border being reintroduced, the Keshcarrigan parade will have a customs post with a passport check to help people get used to life along the border once again.

For those younger people who are new to the whole concept of smuggling, there will be a Fetac level 6 smuggling course available to help you out.

The fun starts at 2pm.
