Congratulations to Conahy Vintage Club, who have won this year’s All-Ireland Scarecrow Championship, with their stunning creation “King Kong”.

The monstrous installation has wowed the crowds at Durrow Scarecrow Festival 2017, and has ensured that for the 3rd year in succession, Conahy Vintage Club, claim the prestigious All-Ireland title. The results were announced shortly after 4pm today, and though nothing is ever a given when the judges come to deliberate, there was little surprise, and much joy when King Kong emerged as the overall winner!

From all at Durrow Scarecrow Festival, we extend to Conahy Vintage Club, both our gratitude for such an amazing entry, and of course our utmost congratulations for your well deserved success! King Kong has thrilled and fascinated both young and old, during the festival, and was always the crowd favourite and a very worthy winner!

Let the celebrations begin!

We will list all winners from all categories as soon as possible, but for now, one more time – Congratulations to Conahy Vintage Club, and the amazing King Kong!
