The first fish market in Ireland was opened in Drogheda yesterday with a number of new features.
It has become a centre for fishmongers and a destination for people visiting Ireland to purchase the best quality of fish.
The market is located on the corner of St Stephen’s Green and St James’s Road.
Its opening day is scheduled for this Saturday and the Irish Department of Fisheries and Food has confirmed it will remain open until Monday.
Fishing was also on offer in the surrounding areas as well.
The city of Dublin has hosted a number on the island of Ireland’s south west.
It was recently reported that one of the islands biggest fishing companies was closing their offices in the area as they were unable to attract the required amount of staff.
There are currently around 150 businesses operating in the island, including a small fish market and a local seafood restaurant.
