Longford holding sells above guide
A 30.37ac residential farm at Ballintempan, Longford, sold immediately prior to auction on Friday for more than €250,000.
The property was bought in two lots. The residence and 25.37ac made up one lot, while a further 5ac parcel, located away from the main property, was sold separately. Both sections were bought by locals.
As the auction was about to begin, auctioneer Frank Regan, of DNG Frank Regan, Longford, was telephoned by solicitors acting for the vendors and buyers to inform him that contracts had been signed and the deal had been transacted for a sum in excess of the €250,000 guide.
