Euro Auctions will host a collectors’ sale of classic, vintage, and antique tractors, plant, machinery, motor cars and commercial vehicles on Saturday the 1st of May at Castle Irvine in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. This single-day auction will be held as a ‘physical sale’ at the stunning Castle Irvine venue, just outside of Irvinestown, while buyers can participate in real time via the internet. With Euro Auctions marketing the auction to a database of regular buyers in over 115 countries around the world, this will be a truly international event.
Euro Auctions are now inviting consignors to enter their cherished machines into this sale. Andrew Crawford from Euro Auctions, who is managing the event, comments: “We are never surprised with the inventory of machinery and vehicles a sale of this calibre provides to the buyer. Our regular consignors in the UK have some amazing lots for sale, and we are expecting a great catalogue covering all categories. We expect bidding to be brisk, with bidders from a global market taking interest in this sale. Euro Auctions has a strong history of selling classic, antique and vintage machinery and vehicles, and this sale will be no exception.”
Not since a private collection of over a hundred classic and historic tractors went under the hammer in April 2017 will such a sale have been held in Northern Ireland. On that occasion, Euro Auctions hosted the sale of the private collection and several notable machines went under the hammer, making record hammer prices, including a 1938 Ferguson Brown Type A that reached £24,500stg.
Andrew Crawford from Euro Auctions comments: “At all the main Euro Auctions sales in the UK we get a good collection of classics and vintage on a regular basis. At the recent sale at Leeds, a 1971 Mk1 Ford Escort Mexico went over the ramp for £26,000. At the WH Bond sale in 2019, a 1948 Caterpillar D7 3T model 4-cylinder diesel crawler made £36,000, having undergone a total ‘nut & bolt’ rebuild. A vintage 1960s Hymac 480 smashed the estimated sale price, selling for over four times the estimate for £16,500. We never know what will be entered into the sale, and this is the exciting part of an auction such as this.”
The backdrop to this sale will be the stunning Castle Irvine, also known as Necarne Castle, which lies south of the town of Irvinestown in County Fermanagh. This beautiful medieval site boasts a castle built in the 17th century by Gerard Lowther as part of the plantation of Ulster. Fermanagh District Council bought the Necarne Castle estate in 1981, and today it is used as an equestrian centre and corporate venue.
