I hear that Elphin Mart has a new manager on the way.

Roscommon native Kevin Caslin will take up the reins from Gerry Connellan on Monday 24 May. It’s a big gig with Elphin Mart now one of the leading marts in the west of Ireland.

Kevin, who hails from just up the road in Hillstreet, has been working in Dawn Meats for the last 10 years.

He’s coming in at an exciting time as buyers and sellers prepare to be back bidding ringside on Monday week. Local Elphin man Bernand Donohue will take up the role of chair of the mart committee, as Pat Dockery retires from the position.
