    The four marts in Balla, Ballinrobe, Ballymote and Mohill were closed last week, following an accident at Mohill mart the previous weekend in which a man was injured by a bull.

    The man was airlifted to Sligo University Hospital following the incident in which he sustained serious injuries.

    Aurivo has confirmed today that the livestock marts in Balla, Ballinrobe and Ballymote will reopen for business this week, while Mohill Mart will not reopen until Wednesday week next 25th April.

    The Co-op has confirmed that new health and safety procedures will apply at all marts.

    Only mart staff will be allowed in the sales yard, and new rules will apply in relation to customer access to various areas of the mart, as they say the health and safety of customers, members and employees is of paramount importance.
