The monthly Smithfield Horse market is one of Dublin’s oldest traditions. It is a place where kids from deprived areas of the city buy and sell horses. In recent years the Smithfield area has been redeveloped which creates a striking contrast to the horsemarket, The introduction of The Control of Horses Act has effectively outlawed these kids, and the closure of the market is a real possibility.
