    As of now most of the auctions planned in Ireland will go ahead. A couple of have been postponed or re-scheduled but most sales are online and online platforms are open and in business. Mullens of Laurel Park is live on The Saleroom today. The sale of The O’Mahony Collection at Sheppards in Durrow on March 24 will go ahead though in-person viewing and attendance has been suspended.

    A statement from Sheppards said: “Regrettably, due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, and our highest priority being the health and well-being of our employees and clients, Sheppard’s has made the unprecedented and difficult decision to suspend in-person attendance at the O’Mahony Collection preview and auction. Clients may participate remotely in the O’Mahony Collection sale. Sheppard’s offers online and mobile browsing and remote bidding by telephone, online, or proxy bid.”

    Those planning to travel to view or bid at sales should check their auctioneers websites first. Internationally both Bonhams and Sotheby’s have announced that their auctions will continue and Christie’s is working through a re-structuring of its sales schedules.
