    MEMORIES OF WOOD QUAY PROTESTS AT MULLEN’S

    Thursday, June 8th, 2023

    Little of the fabric of Medieval Dublin remains intact today. The late 1970s saw the original Viking settlement at Wood Quay, which had been remarkably preserved in Liffey mud for almost a Millennium, being destroyed by the development of Dublin Corporation’s offices. Protests against the destruction of Wood Quay received huge public support and it was the cause celebre of the time. A small collection of posters and leaflets produced by the protest movement are offered in three lots at Mullen’s Collector’s Cabinet sale of history, militaria and collectibles auction on June 17. Estimates range from €150-€200. UPDATE: THIS MADE 320 AT HAMMER
