Last week saw the Belclare Sheep Society hold its annual premier sale at Kilkenny Mart, Cillin Hill. Breed secretary Michael Neenan described the sale as being on fire from the get-go, with the first ram into the ring making €1,000.

All in, nine rams breached the €1,000 mark, three rams breached the €2,000 mark and a new breed record price was set.
