Covid 19 restrictions put paid to our annual visit to Roscrea for our October Premier sale – which was very disappointing, the decision was made to hold the sale ONLINE – this took place on Wednesday the 4th of November at 7pm. The auction was hosted by Denis Barrett. Prior to the sale 15 catalogued bulls sold privately which reduced the number on offer on the night.
