AUGUST 26TH 2018 at 4pm
at HEGARTY’S AUCTION ROOMS, BANDON
As the very warm summer starts to draw to a close, we find ourselves looking towards the cooler autumn days ahead and as the seasons change we at Hegarty’s are also ushering in change. Our next auction, which will take place on the 26th of August at 4pm, will be our very first live auction, being hosted on The-Saleroom.
This opens our auction rooms & the fine collection that makes up this catalogue to viewing & online bidding from near and far. We will be one of only two Cork & Munster auction rooms to take this step with The Saleroom, and we have seen a very strong response from registrations & queries since the catalogue went live on August 17th.
We are delighted to present as our final auction of the season, The West Cork Country House Auction, including The Denniss Collection of Schull. This is a wonderful eclectic auction, of over 340 lots. That will include items ranging from antique furniture, fine art, silver & jewellery, there is something for everyone, and with the majority of the items coming from a probate clearance, there is plenty scope bidders of all budgets to find an item to their liking.
We are excited to take this step, but as always welcome our loyal clients to come view and bid in person at our auction rooms on the by-pass, Bandon.
