    A bilingual level crossing sign  UPDATE: THIS MADE 480 AT HAMMER

    Railwayana and pub memorabilia collectors will find much of interest at Aidan Foley’s on the premises auction of contents from Thady O’Neill’s pub at Ennis Road, Limerick on June 20.  Once part of the Two Mile Inn the popular hostelry closed about 12 years ago and with its barrel vaulted carriage like interior it has remained more or less untouched. The 647 lots on offer include rarities that will enthuse collectors like a complete Jacobs Biscuit Tin on stand with a see through lid, an old CIE level crossing sign with warnings in Irish and English, platform signs, enamel advertising, leaded glass pub doors and an antique butter churn.  The catalogue is online and there will be viewing at Thady O’Neill’s on tomorrow and Monday.

    A large sale at Aidan Foley’s Sixmilebridge auction rooms on June 26, 27 and 28 is to be the second last sale at this venue. The Auction Room premises at Sixmilebridge has been sold to a supermarket.  Auctions will continue online.
