Circus In Ballincollig

Hi,

Just wondering if there is a circus on in Ballincollig at the moment.

Saw two signs driving through it this morning but couldn't make out where it actually was.

Anybody have any information on it?

Thanks

There's a circus in the Opera House at the moment, perhaps that's what the signs were for.

Saw signs for circus down in blackpool today. Think it said it is on in blackpool. Big sign saying Exotic animals. Was that similar to the one you saw OP?

So correct in that there's a circus in Ballincollig, but two other circuses in Cork at the moment also - madness if it's true.

I hate the circus, wouldn't bring my kids to one in a million years. This footage is shocking.

after watching the above i couldn't decide if i wanted to go, for years we have been entertained by circuses, and my OH has never been to one so i wanted to show him an animal circus before they were gone,

then i saw this:



i just can't bring myself to go! the poor elephant must have been desperate to get away
