    NATIONAL ANTIQUES FAIR IN LIMERICK

    Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

    The National Antiques Fair at the South Court Hotel in LImerick on November 9 and 10 justifiably claims to be Ireland’s biggest antiques, art and vintage fair by far.  While other fairs have got smaller this one has got bigger and attracts customers from all over Ireland and beyond.  The closure of so many antique shops accounts for this growth as numerous dealers now find it more economical to trade at fairs rather than maintain a presence on the street.

    While this is a pity there is an upside.  Hibernian Antique Fairs say this fair will be full to the rafters with antique shops and dealers and art dealers and galleries.  Many of these are members of the Irish Antique Dealers Association who exhibit at the RDS fair every September.  Another reason for Limerick’s success is that this is a fair that caters for all tastes and all pockets.  Opening times are from 11 am to 6 pm on each day.

    Weldon’s will offer this Edwardian pear shaped emerald cluster ring priced at 24,500.

    OLD DUBLIN ENAMEL SIGN WITH BULLET HOLES FROM THE RISING

    Monday, January 28th, 2019

    Charles and Sarah Vivian will bring this extremely rare advertising sign to the antique fair at the Silver Springs Hotel in Cork on February 3.  The sign comes complete with several bullet holes.  Measuring four feet by three feet it pre-dates the advent of the telephone and may have been on the building at 33 Bachelor’s Walk in Dublin when it was attacked during the Easter Rising in 1916.

    The building two doors east of 33 Bachelor’s Walk on the corner of Sackville St. was Kelly’s Fishing Tackle and Gunpowder shop.  This became known at Kelly’s Fort as it was occupied by Volunteer Captain Peader Bracken and ten men who were shot and shelled at form the direction of Trinity College. Wallis’s, whose number is listed as Dublin 392 in the 1913 telephone directory, made a successful claim for damages after the Rising and received £107-4-10.
