The unxpected snow caused problems, especially on the roads through Ballamodha and Foxdale, but the North was clear.
The late start helped people to arrive and by mid-day the sun was shining, making it a pleasant afternoon.

There were a few items (mainly Tractors & Trailers ) which did not reach the sellers reserves.
It was disappointing to hear that several items were sold at the sale but not put through Central Marts.
Central Marts rent the site, advertise and co-ordinate the sale and feel let down by the few who ” cheat ” the system !
