Raphoe Mart

The Raphoe Livestock Mart annual Christmas Shows and sales were held on Friday, December 4, and Monday, December 7 under the new regulations regarding Covid-19 for Level 3. 

There was a keen interest in all stock at both sales with the support of local butchers, factory agents, exporters, breeders and online bidding also contributing to the shows' success. 

Thanks are extended to everyone who supported the sales, the exhibitors and purchasers and the judges on their professionalism and all who gave donations on the day which amounted to €700 which will be divided between the Donegal Hospice and Foyle Hospice. The mart would like to thank everyone for their generosity.
