Fiona’s antiques career began in her father’s shop. John O’Reilly ran Fine Art Showrooms on Dublin’s South Anne Street and was a founder member of the Irish Antiques Dealers Association.

After training with her father, Fiona opened her own store in Glasthule, Sandycove. Sandycove Fine Arts was an integral part of Glasthule’s main street for over 25 years before moving online in 2019.

Over her career, Fiona has specialised in silver, jewellery, porcelain, glass, mirrors and pictures.

Fiona’s expertise led the Irish Antiques Dealers Association of Ireland to bestow her with an honorary membership. In 2012, Fiona appeared on the BBC’s Antiques Road Trip when the show visited Dublin.

When she isn’t selling antiques and attending fairs, Fiona likes to fit in some tennis when the Irish weather permits it.
