    This oil on board of a group of musicians by Brendan McDonagh from Killoran’s Pub in Co. Sligo was prominent on the set of Normal People. UPDATE: THIS MADE 1,000 AT HAMMER

    A treat is in store for fans of Sally Rooney’s Normal People.  A great selection of collectibles from Killoran’s Pub in Tubbercurry, Co. Sligo, used for the filming of the global hit TV series will feature at the pub and memorabilia sale by Victor Mee on February 28, March 1 and 2. Large paintings of traditional Irish musicians and an Irish country scene were seen in positions of prominence in episode 10.  Many of the lots on offer feature inconspicuously in the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated series. Killoran’s is steeped in historic memorabilia.  Among the lots from the pub is a pair of boots worn by late GAA midfielder Eamonn Mongey in the 1951 All-Ireland final – the last time Mayo took home the Sam Maguire. There is a collection of rare advertising mirrors, an early 20th century Paddy Pure Pot Still mirror and an Ogden’s cigarette dispensing cabinet of similar vintage.  With more than 1,300 lots the sale is on view at Cloverhill, Co. Cavan today, tomorrow and Monday and the catalogue is online.
