    ALL THE FUN OF THE ANTIQUE FAIR IN CORK THIS WEEKEND

    Saturday, March 19th, 2022

    Contemporary Irish art, jewellery, antique furniture, vintage re-designs, silver and collectibles will rub shoulders at the Kingsley Hotel in Cork today and tomorrow.  All the fun of the fair is guaranteed to mark the return of Hibernian Antique Fairs – after several failed attempts – with their first live event in Cork in more than two years. The Cork fair has always been a draw and the hope this time is that absence has made the heart grow fonder.  Organiser Robin O’Donnell promises a full house with dealers from far and wide including some new ones.

    Regulars making a welcome return include Irish Antique Dealers Association members like James Weldon silver and jewellery, Treasures Irish Art and Courtville Antiques. Among the newcomers are Cork Antiques, Midleton, James O’Hare fine art, Pauline Shields militaria and Richard Walshe coins and banknotes.  One newcomer sure to create a stir is Agness Vintage Redesigns.  In an era when there is zilch interest in the lower end of the ordinary brown furniture market this fledgling company founded by Agness Meehan will repurpose, upcycle, transform and make beautiful old Edwardian and Victorian pieces that might otherwise be in danger of being dumped in a skip.  What’s not to like?

    Brian Hurley from Kinsale will exhibit a plate from the Cork Mansion House Service, designed by the renowned Cork based architect George Richard Pain (1793 to 1838), who was a pupil of John Nash. There will be vintage rugs at Annamoe Antiques and Eily Henry will offer a collection of vintage fashion.

    Saturday, February 12th, 2022

    The National Antiques Art and Vintage fair is back and it is taking place in Limerick today and tomorrow.  Reaction to the event has been phenomenal.  There is no doubt, according to organiser Robin O’Donnell of Hibernian Antique Fairs, that people are bursting to get back to normality. There will be furniture, art, silver, jewellery, vintage fashion, porcelain, glass, books and all sorts of collectibles on display. Exhibitors include members of the Irish Antique Dealers Association like James  Weldon, Courtville Antiques, Martin Maguire, Marie Curran, Treasures Athlone, Rory Byrne Donegal Antiques and Greene’s Antiques. This national Limerick based fair at the South Court Hotel is normally a crowd puller and usually draws people from Cork, Kerry, Galway, Tipperary, the Midlands and beyond. Doors are open from 11 am to 6 pm on both days.
