THE CONTENTS of a once legendary Limerick pub are to come under the hammer at an auction scheduled for this Tuesday (June 20).

Thady O’Neill’s on the Ennis Road was once part of the Two Mile Inn but has been closed now for more than a decade.

The pub was famous for its barrel-vaulted interior and eclectic collection of memorabilia.

Included in the auction of more than 600 lots will be items such as railway relics (including a bi-lingual level crossing railway sign), a Jacobs Biscuit tin display on a stand for a time when loose biscuits were sold by weight, metal advertising signs, antique pub doors, and a butter churn.

The catalogue can be viewed online at Aiden Foley’s auctioneers and viewings will be held in the pub on Sunday and Monday from 10am to 5pm.

The sale will be part of a trip down memory lane in more ways than one for the much-loved Sixmilebridge auctioneers, who will be holding their second last physical sale at the auction rooms on June 26, 27, and 28 before taking the business fully online.

The auction rooms have been sold to a supermarket concern.
