The rare sight of cattle being driven by horseback through Rathdowney was welcomed by local residents and people passing through.

Approximately 100 head of  cattle were driven from a property south of  Rathdowney to the Royston property on the Lions Road.

Several locals took the opportunity to help out, enjoying the opportunity to visit a bygone era.
