Antique Fair-Clontarf Castle

20160313_155412Mary and I visited the Antique  Fair  in Clontarf Castle.  After the obligatory  cup of coffee (overpriced) we made our way to the downstairs rooms. It was €3.50 per person and as it turned out good value for money. There were a variety of stalls well turned out and well presented, selling comic books, paintings, silverware and rings and various  nick nacks. I met my friend Frank O’Dea owner of Balla Ban Gallery,20160313_155433.jpgselling Knuttel family art, minature’s by Pervanah  Mathews, cartoons by Ray Sherlock and Frank’s own shady ladies (painted manaquins). I even invested in an excellent book by John De Courcy Ireland entitled ” The Sea and the Easter Rising”.
