HIBERNIAN Antique Fairs and Robin O’Donnell have announced details of the annual West Cork Antique and Arts Fair at the Celtic Ross Hotel, Rosscarbery on Sunday, August 19th.

The Fair will be the only one in West Cork this year as the Kinsale Fair cannot go ahead as Acton’s Hotel has not yet reopened.

Over the 22 years since Hibernian Antique Fairs starting running Ireland’s provincial Antique and Art Fairs they have consistently grown and grown.

Throughout those years thousands of items have been bought and sold from jewellery and furniture, silver china and porcelain to coins and banknotes, books, art and clocks.

More than 100,000 items will be on offer from more than 20 dealers exhibiting at the fair.

Among those exhibiting are Weldon’s Jewellery and Silver Dublin , Hugo Greene Furniture Dublin, Treasure Irish Art from Athlone, Annamoe Antiques Wicklow, Eddie McMahon Banknotes & Coins and John Vanweensveen Co Mayo.

Prices start from a few euro with many of the items priced under €100.

Robin O’Donnell said, “There will be a massive selection of items here and without exception prices have never been more competitive.

“Never has there been a better time to buy antiques and art whether for simple pleasure or for investment.”
