The West Cork village of Leap was absolutely buzzing this afternoon as thousands of people visited to view the impressive array of entries for the Leap Scarecrow Festival, which has truly captured the public imagination.

Hundreds of cars were parked throughout the village and for several hundred yards at either side, as families ambled around on foot admiring the scarecrows and taking photos with them.

Traffic on the N71 through the village both ways travelled at snail's pace and it took up to ten minutes to get from one end to the other with so much to see.

Another large crowd is expected in Leap on bank holiday Monday to take in all there is to marvel at.
