A walking stick used by republican leader Michael Collins, artworks by loyalist spree killer Michael Stone and a metal gate from the Maze prison are just some of the items relating to conflict on the island of Ireland which have gone up for auction next week.

Bloomfield Auctions in Belfast will hold the auction next Tuesday, with an array of historical items available to collectors and those with an interest in the Troubles alike.

Other items include Nazi memorabilia, including a porcelain jug linked to the upper echelons of the Nazi party during WWII.

22 paintings by recently-released Milltown killer Michael Stone, an avid artist, will be included.

Among the paintings are an image of the queen with union flag glasses, a Titanic-themed work and a painting bearing the words ‘no longer the silent majority - challenge republican revisionism’.
