According to George Candler, some 500 lots came under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Monday, June 13th, 2022.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that a “fast and furious” response from buyers resulted in a full clearance.

He noted that a “very lively” trade prevailed for lambs and cull ewes, with lambs to €192/head and cull ewes to highs of €232.
