Fifteen totally made up nonsensical words that Irish people love to use
Banagher, Co. Offaly, Ireland - September 16, 2012: Horse traders huddling together in small groups like this are a common sight at the Banagher Horse Fair and these three veterans of the horse trade are no exception. The idea behind the huddle is one man will make an offer on a horse and the man on the right - who owns the horse - will either accept or reject it while the witness in the middle listens on intently. These men live locally, however, some of those attending come from all over Ireland and the United Kingdom and travel hundreds of miles to attend this event. The recently introduced legal requirement to microchip horses - or implant tracking data - and the prohibitive cost of cleaning up after these events means photographic delights like this are quickly becoming a thing of the past.
