About Us

Clare Marts is a farmer owned co-operative consisting of 2,500 shareholders. Clare Marts Ltd. has 4 centres with Ennis being the flagship and head office of the organisation.  The other centres are Kilrush, Scariff and Kilfenora. Sales are held weekly in Ennis.  On Tuesdays, weanlings, suckler stock, calves and sheep are on offer while on Thursdays we sell beef and store bullocks and heifers, dry cows and factory bulls, with a Friday sale in the springtime for dairy and sucker cows and some special pedigree and dispersal sales.  Sales in our other centres are seasonal and sale dates can be viewed on our sales diary.

Clare is renowned for the production of top quality weanlings and store cattle, which are produced from a well-established suckler base within the county.  These cattle are deemed very suitable for finishing at heavy carcase weights with customers from all over the country frequenting our sales particularly from the Midlands and Northern Ireland. The general base of the suckler cow herd within the county was of good type stock, however in order to further improve the quality of stock on offer the Society has, over a number of years provided several premia schemes to subsidise the purchase of top quality continental bulls.  These schemes have brought about a further improvement in the quality of stock available at our sales. Approximately 90,000 of these quality animals pass through our centres on an annual basis.

At Clare Marts Limited we provide the following services:

  • Purchase of animals for customers.
  • Transport Arranged
  • Lairage facilities available overnight
  • Trading of Entitlements
  • Land Letting and Sales

Ennis Mart, Bullocks, Heifers, Dry Cows and Aged Bulls

Ennis Mart Thursday Sept 19th 2019


One of the smallest cull cow sales in years today as people nervous about selling these days due to the factory shut down.  Bullock numbers and heifer numbers also back a bit on last week.  However trade has been maintained all round and store bullock trade a shade better.  Again the 2½ yr old bullock of 600kgs are the toughest trade and finding it hard to average €2/kg.  Heifer trade similar to last week and it was mostly coloured cows today.  A selection of aged bulls averaged €1.44/kg with a top call of €1,740 for 1,055 kg Limousin.

Ennis Mart, Weanling Bulls, & Heifers, Dairy & Suckling Stock, Runners, Calves & Sheep.

Ennis Mart Tuesday 17th September 2019

Overall average prices up €23 on this day 12 months.  Smaller sale today in line with other years on ploughing week.  Trade strong for the bulls both weanling and runners and a huge amount of activity from shippers.  Some demand today for bulls of 380kgs plus for bull beef at a price and these averaged around €2.20/kg.  Heifer numbers small but trade solid to slightly improved.  Runners meet a strong trade all round.  Trade for suckler stock was positive with pairs reaching €1,700.  Factory lambs tougher trade as a few customers not able to get these killed and it was butchers and wholesalers that maintained trade.  Cull ewes made €85 to €105.
