The Corrs violin sells for £1,600 for charity
The musical instrument was developed in France for Sharon Corr and is adorned with the tint of the Irish tricolour.
Sharon, who first came to fame in the 90s as part of the classical Irish foursome, is known for her philanthropy and was happy to help out.
She specifically donated the violin to support Oxfam's Make Space campaign, which is asking the public to donate more to its shops.
Speaking to Dundalk Democrat, she said: "It has been living very happily underneath the space where my piano is at home. This violin defines me, and I think anything you identify with like that is very, very special.
"I think if you are going to give something, you should give something that is very special to you because then you are truly giving."
The Corrs have produced five albums in total. Their last record Home was released in 2005 and though still together they are currently on a break.
