The Puck Fair committee has confirmed that King Puck was reinstated on the stand in Killorglin town last night.

In a statement, a spokesperson said the decision was taken to put him back up in his cage once temperatures dropped and organisers were assured of a clean bill of health.

The goat was removed yesterday after a veterinarian ruled the temperatures were too high for him to stay on the stand.


GardaĂ­ say he was brought back down and placed in the shade for the final day of the festival this morning..
