Ross's: II

This morning I had a good chin-wag with Daniel Clarke of Ross's, the celebrated and long-established auction-house in central Belfast.

I was consulting him about a few items of my own, with a view to selling them.

I'd passed the new café several minutes earlier, though Daniel suggested I give it a try; so, brandishing the ancient whangee umbrella, I walked downstairs and into the new café in Montgomery Street.

Ross's are furnishing it with ~ appropriately enough ~ vintage and even antique items of furniture and paintings.

I predict that it will become an established feature, especially on auction days.

TODAY I researched Kilbroney House, Rostrevor; the Lyons' of Old Park, Belfast; and the Kingans of Glenganagh, County Down.
