Jonesborough Sunday Market

Hi

I heard on the radio that Jonesborough Sunday market is now stopped until further notice

Does anybody now if it has just moved location ,and if so ,does anybody know where it has now moved to

It was handy for some bargains,whether legal or illegal .

thanks

Story I heard was, that it has been closed - FOR GOOD.
Due to the availability of counterfeit CD's,DVD's...etc..etc..
We'll have to wait and see....

Actually heard it's being assessed in January.

PSNI closed it down due to counterfeit stuff.

so it might be worth the gamble to take a drive up next sunday and see what is going it , possibly be some traders there ??

next question ..does anybody now a nearby market in the border area where i can buy the same merchandise similarly available in jonesborough ?

*edit (PORNAPSTER) - We do not want anything illegal to be discussed about on this forum*

cheers

The only other one I can think of off hand, is Clougher market, on Saturdays. Its just off on the Cavan-Clones road, but nowhere near Jonesborough.

Clogher Market, its pretty big, its on the monaghan/cavan/fermanagh border, tho if the PSNI are closing jonesborough market down then there could be a possibility of this one beig closed.

Yes, but you don't see the amount of pirate DVD/CD-ROM's in Clougher that you did in Jonesborough.

Though Clougher is in an interesting spot, for the PSNI to get there, they have to go into the Republic, something they don't do often....

Hi Sparks 400

Is Jonesboro still in full swing on a sunday afternoon ?,i heard it had closed but found it hard to believe the traders would let their busiest earning day go down the pan without a fight

So if i headed up there on sunday all the usual stalls will be still be selling openly ???

Hopefully so ,i need to pick up a fair few bargains which i had been looking for in the past few weeks but had thought the market was closed .

cheers for the post
