Try in the Antiques & Collectables section

This was in it a couple of years back, just out of nosiness, why our you looking for one?

Try the architectural salvage yards near the border. There used to be one on the old Jewry road from Dundalk (on the right hand side of the motorway going north). They had a telephone box there a couple of months ago.
