    Big Fairs in Listowel
    There are three big fairs in the year in Listowel one in the 13th of May one in the 25th of July ? one in the 28th of Oct. Although the later is held on the 28th Oct it is usually called Nov. Fair. A lot of buyers as well as sellers attend these fairs. Supposing a man was selling a cow and he asked L16 and the buyer would offer him L13 he would say no, I will not give her less than L16. Then he would offer L11:10 he would still huckster and another man would come on and say "split it." then they both would agree. Then the buyer would mark the prior in a paper and give it to him. Then he would tell him to carry the cow to wherever he would want her. Then he would be paid.
