Laois’s auctioneer to Hollywood, Sean Eacrett will be bringing the gavel down on his latest celluloid props collection, with ‘Vikings’ and Game Of Thrones’ on Monday next.

The auction will feature thrones and costumes props primarily from the six Vikings series filmed in County Wicklow, and two items of interest from Game Of Thrones (see above).

Vikings ran for six series, which were filmed in Ashford County Wicklow on a set which included an entire mock village called ‘Kattegat’.

The props up for auction online at Sean Eacrett might suit a Vikings buff, a movie fan or collector or even a commercial buyer in the hospitality industry….

Ah here.

The launch of the final seasonseason of Game Of Thrones could only mean one thing.

Strike up the cross-promotional marketing campaigns!

Enter Fender, who have launched a special custom-made collection of their trademark guitars in honour of the drama. And rather impressive they are too.

The three new six-string beauties bear the sigils of House of Stark, House Lannister and House Targaryen – priced at $25,000, $30,000 and $35,000 respectively. A snip!

“Ron Thorn at Fender has built three beautiful, Game Of Thrones-inspired works of art, and you can out-shred your enemies with all of them,” said the programme’s showrunner D.B. Weiss.

With the exception of Keith Richards, he might have added.

Do you think you know your Iron Islands from your Stormlands? Could you identify King’s Landing from a mile off, and do you know the exact location where Daenerys and Dragos’ wedding took place?

Well now you can test your Game of Thrones knowledge in a brand new interactive game which has been launched ahead of the new, and final, series of Game of Thrones airing this year.

The game displays Google street views of the real life locations where iconic Game of Thrones scenes and landmarks were filmed, and the player must identify where this is in the Westeros world. But beware the clock is ticking!

Thanks to the functionality of the game, you can drag the street view around so you can view the location from different angles.

Think it sounds easy? Try out the Maester Mode if you’re feeling confident.

The game was created by specialist Ireland tour operators Overland Ireland, and of course many of the Game of Thrones locations were filmed in Ireland – including Kingsroad, Iron Islands and The Stormlands.

But enough clues, you can try the game for yourself here.

And remember, when you play the Game of Thrones you win or you die
