Cavan on August 12.   The Irish single malt comes from the George Roe distillery at Thomas St. in Dublin which closed in 1923.  It took some years to wind it up and this 16 year old release is believed to have been produced in the 1930’s for export to the US. It is estimated at €6,000-€12,000.The sale by Victor Mee Auctions of Cloverhill, Belturbet, Co. Cavan will feature several different categories of collectibles. A 1940’s Shell petrol pump glass globe is estimated at €400-€600 and the sale features an original Shell motor spirit advertising mirror and a Duckhams 20-50 oil barometer advertisement.   Another rarity is an advertising mirror from Persse’s Nun’s Island Distillery in Galway which operated until around 1908.  This too is estimated at €6,000-€12,000.
