Quality types attracted top calls, while plainer cattle were difficult to sell. Sheep improved by €2/head and made up to €118.

The trade held "very strong" for top-quality lots at Ennis Mart, with some attractive prices recorded for types at the upper end of the market, according to a spokesperson for the mart.

Lesser lots - plainer and lighter types - in all rings proved difficult to sell, the spokesperson added.

Suckler pairings made up to €1,680; runner heifers climbed to €860 and runner bulls pushed up to €1,000.
