I saw this wonderful photograph in a shop window in Killarney last weekend. The man in the photograph looks like a farmer who had gone to town on it's Fair Day. We have our Fair Day (Bantry, today) on the first Friday of the month. In Ireland it was the day when farmers walked their cattle to the town square to sell them. Pigs and sheep were also sold this way.
The man in the photograph reminds me of when I got my first allotment in England. I use to load up Netto (dear old Netto) with carrier bags of our freshly harvested onions, potatoes, cabbage, carrots etc. I would sway down the road with the bags nearly getting stuck in the spokes of the wheel.
Did you ever move house with a bicycle or a supermarket shopping trolley? Or do you carry things home on your push iron? Go on lets have a laugh and a joke.
