Buying and Selling

Killimor and Boleybeg, Co. Galway

Long ago people did not have far to go to the shops. Buying and selling was carried out after mass. The items sold include tea, sugar, bread, tobacco and matches. Sometimes money was not exchanged, but labour was offered instead. Saturday was an unlucky day to transact business.
