Every year, a 12-foot-tall teddy bear made from bales of hay is made to mark the start of the Kilflynn Enchanted Fairy Festival, RadioKerry reports.

However, last night someone decided to set the teddy on fire, which isn’t very nice at all if we’re being honest about things. 

Anyway, not to worry, Ted is back in his rightful place on the N69 Tralee-Listowel road – except now he’s dressed as a fireman. 

G’wan, Ted.
