Furniture Donation at a Sale at Haynes Farm in Dublin

An inventory of furniture donated to charity from Haynes Farms, Dublin, is on sale for the first time at a charity auction.

The furniture is from the estate of George Haynes, the man who owned the property where the family ran a number of clothing stores from the 1860s until the early 1900s.

It is on display at the Haynes Family Estate in the village of Ballycranagh for sale by Christie’s on Friday.

Mr Haynes was the second Irishman to win the Nobel Prize in economics.

His brother, William, was awarded the Nobel in physics.

The Haynes family owned the farm for a period in the late 1870s, and the farm was taken over by Mr Haynes’s brother, Charles.

It was in Mr Hayne’s name that the farm went to auction in 2016 for the fifth time.

Mr and Mrs Haynes are known for their traditional farmhouse style, with their large garden and woodland in the heart of the village.

The estate also has a farm-to-table restaurant.

There is a plaque at the entrance to the property to mark the first auction of its kind in Dublin.

The property is open to the public.
