This board­room ta­ble from the for­mer Cen­tral Bank build­ings in Dame Street, Dublin, is to be of­fered at The Her­itage, Kil­lenard, Co Laois on May 30. More than 5,000 ob­jects will be sold. It took 25 ar­tic­u­lated lor­ries to clear out the re­cently-va­cated four-build­ing com­plex.

The con­tents were bought by well­known an­tique dealer Niall Mullen.

“All of the board­room fur­ni­ture, desks, chairs and an­cil­lary items were left on site.... but there was no-one will­ing to take the good, the bad and the ugly in one lot.”

The auc­tion will con­tain many of the orig­i­nal desks and ta­bles from Sam Stephenson’s time. There is also spec­tac­u­lar board­room fur­ni­ture made by top Ir­ish fur­ni­ture de­sign­ers Klim­mek, with side ta­bles, mar­ble-topped side­boards and high-end ex­ec­u­tive chairs. View­ing is now un­der way.

Klim­mek-de­signed ta­bles from the sev­enth floor of the for­mer Cen­tral Bank build­ing in Dame Street up for auc­tion on May 30 at The Her­itage, Kil­lenard, Co Laois.
