Dealers will flock to the Cork town tomorrow, writes Des O’Sullivan.

Kinsale is a popular venue on many fronts, and tomorrow it is the turn of the antique trade.

A little bit of everything will be on offer with Hibernian Antique Fairs in attendance at Acton’s Hotel from 11am to 6pm.

This is a particularly popular venue amongst dealers who travel from all over Ireland as it is a fair that generally does very well. 

They find that interested, knowledgable, and appreciative collectors flock to Kinsale, and hopefully tomorrow will be no exception.

There is a wide variety of goods on offer, from jewellery and silver to Irish art, small antique furniture pieces, porcelain, glass, books, collectible items, and vintage fashion.

A total of 25 dealers will travel to a venue that organiser Robin O’Donnell reports that he could fill twice over.
