Your chance to own 'a bit of Irish history' as Anglo furniture to be auctioned off

Furniture from former offices of the infamous bank in south Dublin will go up for auction this weekend.

‘BEAUTIFUL’ BOARDROOM TABLES, executive chairs and various other, high-quality office furnishings from former offices of the now notorious Anglo Irish Bank are to be put up for auction this weekend.

Furniture from the now liquidated Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (IBRC) – the new name for Anglo Irish  - offices in Connaught House on the Burlington Road in Dublin is being auctioned off in Dublin this Saturday morning.

Wilsons Auctions are handling the event having received instructions from KPMG who are carrying out the liquidation of the bank following government moves in February to abolish the promissory note arrangements.

Auctioneer Ricky Wilson told TheJournal.ie that there has been “a huge amount of interest” as a result of both the quality of the furniture and its connection to the notorious bank.

Items up for auction including a large selection of rectangular office desks, curved front office desks, executive office swivel chairs, a 20 foot boardroom table with chairs, side boards and “much, much more”.

Wilson said that the furniture is of a “beautiful standard and in my opinion would grace any office or building”.

The condition of the furniture would indicate it is not more than five years old and may not have been sat in when some of the most crucial decisions relating to Anglo were being made by former directors who have been back in the news this week.

Nonetheless, Wilson argues that the connection to Anglo is creating lots of interest.

“People will obviously know the name and want to purchase this bit of Irish history,” Wilson said. Shanta Lawlor, the agent who is handling the auction, added: “You don’t know who sat at them tables and what decisions were made.”

More information about the auction can be found on the Wilsons Auctions website.
