Long ago the people used to make tents on Sundays after mass. Near the chapel they used to make them. The buyers used to exchange goods, as they used not have much money. More people used to give a day's or a couple of days work for goods received. They used to hols bonham and pig markets and fairs at the cross of Bellharbour.
People do not like to buy or sell on a Sunday. Once upon a time a man bought a pig of a Sunday. The pig dies he was half way home. He asked Biddy Early why did the pig die. She said it was because he bought him on the Sabbath. From that on he never bought any thing on the Sabbath.
