Kilkenny Cattle market, Thursday Morning 24th Oct.

I have just spent the last two Thursday mornings at the Cattle market in county Kilkenny building up some Gallery images and selling some cattle I invested in.

The market meets each Thursday Morning from around 9am, the sales provide one the most atmospheric locations to take images in and I just loved watching all the farmers selling or buying cattle.

I will keep returning over the next months as I hope to keep building on this portfolio of images, I will also post the best images I have so far during the coming weeks.

    • Hello Norma ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes I know exactly what you mean and it’s true. The Mart feels very much just for Farmers but it’s great experience to go in and see what’s going on.

      Every school should arrange to go in just so the kids know what they are seeing in their shops and butchers.

      Thank you Norma that’s a great comment!

  2. Good behind the scenes shots; the first image looks like the livestock are coming out of jury box! Well, they are on a trial for their lives so-to-speak…
