    Some of the biggest names in the pub and hospitality industry turned up at the Victor Mee auction at Killenard, Co. Laois  as 1,500 items from Dublin entertainment venue Howl at the Moon came under the hammer. A pair of Game of Thrones-style bronze doors from the central Dublin nightclub made 12,500 – four times the top estimate. A two-metre square French chandelier made 2,800.

    “The competition in the room and online sparked several bidding wars with items starting in low hundreds and ending up at four figures,” said auction organiser Niall Mullen, who was delighted that the bronze doors were staying in the country. The calibre of bidder shows that the entertainment industry is back in buying mood, with many items making well above previous levels.”

    The auction continues today Tuesday with the entire contents of the private members club Residence including bars, mirrors, glassware and furniture, historical items from Clery’s and lots from the Shelbourne Hotel.
