Tralee is the county town of Co. Kerry and I’m very fond of the place. But the market is long gone and we are the worse for it’s going. All the color is being bleached out of our live by the big business interests. This market occupied the center of Tralee town and it was ringed around by pubs, their back doors opening onto the market. You would meet great characters there, some of them drunk in a friendly way……..and some not. you could sell sheep, pigs ,cows, your car and even your mother, if you could find someone drunk enough to buy her. We have lost a rhythm of life and we are the worse for its going.
