CHICKENS, donkeys, a few sheep and some drop calves are among the lots set to go under the hammer at a fundraising auction in Tempo.
The auction which hopes to raise funds for the upkeep of the grave yard is set to be held at St Mary’s Community Centre on Saturday 7 September at 2pm.
Following the success of last year’s auction the organisers have set the date for the 2019 funraiser.
Speaking to the Herald one of the organisers explained, “We had an auction last year and a lot of people bought household goods, clothes and bits and bobs. We had a good variety, like horses, ducks, hens, sheep, goats and the a good few of the same people have said they will bring along the same again this year.
“If it’s a good day people should turn up and there will be a good bit of stuff. Weather makes or breaks it. Last year we had a very good crowd and we would be hoping for something similar again this year.
“If people want to sell anything we will do so for a minimal fee. All good quality items welcome for donation. The seller can stand with the auctioneer and if they are happy to sell it for the price they can do so and if not they can take it back home.”
Items kindly donated so far include: Steelwork frame for a shed, mountfield sit on lawn mower, as good as new, a red and white Simmental heifer, 13 months old, suitable for breeding, calves, sheep a goat and a petrol strimmer.
Travelling from Irvinestown to sell the items is popular auctioneer Liam Leonard. It is sponsored by Paul McDonagh, Leam Agri.
