Buyers urged to take advantage of strong pound at Meath auction

By Staff Reporter

It's being billed as the biggest auction ever held in Ireland.

And with the pound trading strongly against the euro, there's never been a better time for buyers from Northern Ireland to snap up an impressive bargain.

Matthews Auction Rooms in Co Meath is hosting a two-day receiver clearance auction on March 28 and 29 at noon each day.

Over 40,000 individual items are to be sold, including modern furniture, mirrors, lights, porcelain, china, rugs, glass, silver, bronzes and a small selection of antiques. The lots will be on public view on March 26 from 11am-5pm, on March 27 from 10am-6pm and on auction days from 10am.

Organisers have said people in Northern Ireland should check out this "absolutely massive auction" as they will get added value given sterling's strength at the moment. The auction is being hosted at Greenogue Industrial Estate, 15 minutes from Dublin.

It will be signposted on view and auction days. The online catalogue is available from this Friday by visiting
