End of an era as the old mart in Market Street is demolished

This photo from North Kerry Camera ( Vincent Carmody) depicts a red letter day in Listowel as the new livestock mart was opened and blessed.

Today, November 9 2011 is another such day as the same premises is demolished.

I took some photos on Monday in anticipation of the demolition.

Today I took these  following photos

Of course, Listowel Livestock Mart has a state of the art new premises in Tanavalla and the old buildings had become a bit of an eyesore so today is, in fact, a good and a welcome one in town.
