30 Oct Leap of faith pays off for Rita
The fourth annual Scarecrow Festival gets underway in Leap this weekend. Having started out as a simple idea to keep the village alive during a quiet time of the year, it now attracts people from all over the country
FUELLED by ‘furry biscuits,’ Leap is once more Ireland’s scariest village and will celebrate Halloween in spooktacular style.
For the past three years, thanks to the vision of local resident Rita Ryan, helped by a community of willing volunteers and a never ending supply of Mikado (what they call their furry biscuits), Leap’s Scarecrow Festival has attracted people from far and wide.
