A Caws For Concern (show time 5pm in the Scarecrow Village, same day 3rd August)

They say all the crows in Durrow go on holidays while the Scarecrow festival is on, but this year unfortunately three supernatural crows, Babh, Macha and Anand, didn’t get that message. Ancient spirits of the Earth and MAJOR celebrities of the crow world, they have come to watch over the fields, take their share of the crops and impart their otherworldly wisdom on, well anyone that will hear it now that the other crows are gone for the week – even a pair of scarecrows and an audience of good for nothing children and their parents will do.
