    A bygone era in Kerry, when deals were done in smoke filled rooms at the County Kerry Club in Denny St., Tralee, is recalled in a lot coming up at Mullen’s classic and contemporary interiors online sale at Laurel Park, Bray on August 24. Established in the early 1830’s the County Kerry Club, at 9/10 Denny St., numbered Daniel O’Connell and his brother John among its members and offered both dining rooms and accommodation.  Lot 458 is an inscribed silver tea service presented in 1866 by the members to Richard Chute Mason, club secretary.  It is estimated at €2,500-€3,000. Among the other lots on offer is a pair of monumental sandstone garden urns, each over two metres high. Their Irish owners shipped them from their home in Beverly Hills to  the grounds of their home in south Dublin when they returned to live here. They are estimated at €8,000-€12,000.
