Time is running out to view 81 17th century gold coins at the County Museum in Clonmel.

The coins were discovered during renovations at Cooney’s pub in Main Street, Carrick-on-Suir earlier this year.

The gold coins have been loaned by the National Museum of Ireland to the Clonmel Museum, where they are on display until Thursday, October 17.

The earliest coin dates to 1664 (during the reign of Charles II) while the latest is from 1701, when William III was king.

They include guineas and half guineas.

The Museum is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm for this special occasion, and admission is free.

The coins have already been displayed in Carrick’s Ormond Castle, with over 1,000 people turning up to view the hoard when they were placed on display for one day.
