Des O’Sullivan sees what’s on offer at an auction in Sixmilebridge.

IF YOU would like your seasonal cheer delivered in a white carriage then Aidan Foley’s auction at Sixmilebridge, Co Clare, on Monday and Tuesday is a must-attend.

The sale will include part two of the Murray family collection from Limerick complete with the stagecoach used in pantomimes and to ferry Miss Ireland contestants and a selection of vintage whiskey and champagne from this pub- and hotel-owning family.

These will be included among 1,200 lots on Tuesday.

On Monday there will be a selection of books and boxed records, including old Rolling Stones albums from the 1960s and some 78s on the HMV Label.

It is on view from today at The Auction Rooms in Sixmilebridge.
