Expect keen bidding for 23 paintings from the collection of Anne and the late Brian Friel to be sold at Adam’s next week in aid of the Peter McVerry Trust, a charity devoted to reducing homelessness and social disadvantage – they could fetch €100,000 for this worthy cause.

Cormorants and gulls populate Evening Flight by Norah McGuinness, an artist as joined at the hip to Donegal as was Friel, 51x76cm (€15,000-€25,000).
