PICS: There was a Scarecrow Festival in Laois this weekend and somebody perfectly recreated Electric Picnic... with scarecrows

There is a scarecrow version of Jenny Greene and everything!

Running from Sunday 29 July to Monday 6 August, there is a Scarecrow Festival taking place in Durrow, County Laois.

The official website kicks off with a fantastic pun - "The festival that’s outstanding in its field" - so we reckoned we were fully on board.

But then we seen the Pope scarecrow, and visions of The Wicker Man immediately came to mind, and we started to question whether or not this was something we could survive without having a full on panic attack.

However, we were then shown the pictures of a fully recreated Electric Picnic festival - with acts, DJs, main stage, bar and food trucks - all via the magic of scarecrows, and we were right back on board again.
