The late married couple, Ernie and May McPhillips didn’t smoke, drink or go out on the town – their passion was collecting and this weekend the entire contents of their modest Monaghan town home will go under the hammer in Matthews’ two-day sale on the premises. Nine hundred lots comprise antique furniture, paintings, sculpture, silver, fine china, books, cut crystal, Persian carpets, gold and diamond jewellery, collectables and household goods, estimates €20,000–€60,000; see matthewsauctionrooms.com.
