€8,500/ac paid in Co Kildare for quality grazing grounds
Close to €8,500/ac was paid for a 13ac non-residential holding at Nurney, Co Kildare.
The holding was sold after auction.
The land is located on the edge of Nurney village, around nine miles from Newbridge.
Currently in grass, the lands are described as being of good grazing quality ground, laid out in one block and two divisions.
A reasonable attendance turned out for the auction with three bidders joining the fray when Willie Coonan of Coonan's REA Maynooth opened proceedings with a bid of €50,000.
Bidding continued until the property was withdrawn at €90,000.
Following discussions with the highest bidder, a sale was concluded at a figure in the order of €110,000 or almost €8,500/ac and some €15,000 stronger than the guide.
