The annual Incognito art sale, which supports the Jack and Jill Children's Foundation, was sold out within 15 minutes of going online this morning, organisers said.

Bono and Bruce Springsteen were among the artists who contributed work to the public arts initiative, alongside a number of noteworthy international artists.

A total of 1,814 artworks were sold at €50 each. 

Pieces by Helen Steele, Paul Costelloe, Maser, Alice Maher, Patti Springsteen, Dan Chester, Mick O'Dea and Ruthie Ashenhurst were also included in the sale.

Each piece in the collection cost €50 - but no one knew the identity of the artists until after they bought the art. 

This year's sale was online only because of Covid-19 restrictions.

Each €50 purchase equates to three hours of specialist home nursing care for one of 340 Jack & Jill families nationwide.

The foundation provides specialist home nursing care and support to children with severe neurodevelopmental delay who may never walk or talk or paint a picture themselves - find out more here.
