VIDEO: Seller bursts into song at Clare cattle mart

Kilrush Mart Song

Farmer, John Browne, Kilkee, burst into song after selling some cattle at Kilrush Mart, Co Clare yesterday (Wednesday, September 7th, 2022).

Browne told the story of days gone by at show and sale days in Kilrush during his 4-minute performance, which the mart’s auctioneer, Pat Neylon, encouraged.

Neylon asked the seller: “You sold the last couple of cattle, sir, and you want to sing a verse of a song?”

“Come sing a song, and I will hold the microphone for you,” the auctioneer remarked before Browne took centre stage.

According to a spokesperson, a “big” entry came under the hammer at the Clare-based mart at its annual show and sale of cattle.

Overall, the spokesperson noted, beef was scarce, but the sale attracted “quite a share” of forward cattle in all rings.

“Some of the quality stores met great demand and achieved over €3/kg in many cases.”

“The sale included quite a number of traditional breeds available today, especially in the bullock ring,” the spokesperson added.
