Kin­sale is al­ways a pop­u­lar venue and Hiber­nian An­tique Fairs will have a full house at Ac­ton’s Ho­tel from 11am to 6pm to­mor­row for what will be their first Kin­sale fair of 2017.

All their reg­u­lar deal­ers will be in at­ten­dance with an ar­ray of sil­ver, jew­ellery, Ir­ish art, and Water­ford Crys­tal. The fish­ing town will also see a col­lec­tion of rare books and maps, china and porce­lain, Vic­to­rian tools, minia­tures, watches, Mu­rano glass, coins, ban­knotes and vin­tage items.

Deal­ers from Belfast, Dublin, Water­ford, Cork, Lim­er­ick, Drogheda, Gal­way and around Ire­land will at­tend.

Among them are Wel­don’s Dublin, Marie Cur­ran, Dublin, Trea­sures Ir­ish Art, Athlone; Des Gal­lagher, Belfast; Mau­reen Kiely, Drogheda; Eva Ryan, Lim­er­ick; Judy Bur­ton, Water­ford and Charles and Sarah Vi­vian from Co Cork.

Sadly, one dealer who will not be there is the late Tom Line­han from Cork who died at the end of April. He will be greatly missed by all of his col­leagues.

A pi­geon’s blood ruby and di­a­mond ring which Wel­don’s will bring to the an­tique fair in Kin­sale to­mor­row (€22,500).

A three-sap­phire ring which will be part of the dis­play on sale at the Hiber­nian An­tique Fair at Kin­sale to­mor­row.
