In other auction-related news, a farmer has forked out €1,155,000 for a circa 68-acre block of “top quality”, free-draining land at Clonmore, Edenderry, Co. Offaly.
The property came under the hammer, at Lawlor’s Hotel, Naas, on the afternoon of June 29th, 2023, in an auction handled by David Doyle of JP & M Doyle.
The property has a stock handling facility and ruins of a castle and outbuildings on-site.
The lands, while presently laid under lush grassland pasture, could serve as a multitude of farming enterprises sheltered by mature hedgerows and trees laid out in two main divisions.
According to the property firm, it is situated in the townland of Clonmore, in this most convenient location with easy access to the M4 and M5 and is a circa 25-minute drive to the train station at Enfield with a commuter service to Dublin city.
