Cattle call at ’Bridge Mart (Clare Champion)


The auctioneer’s gavel will resonate around the ring in Sixmilebidge  Co-operative Mart on Saturday, August 27, when the premises, closed for  the past 18 months, resumes weekly trading once more.
While it’s all systems go as regards preparatory work for the reopening, the management board has appointed Sean Ryan from New Inn, County Galway, as mart manager. He brings the experience of previously running Athenry Mart to the new venture.
Board chairman and local farmer Pat O’Reilly from Rathmore described the workload as challenging but said the board was heartened by the fantastic response locally. He paid tribute to the huge effort made by volunteers to get the mart ready in time.
