Price not revealed in sale of popular 23ac holding

Acreage: 23ac

A TWENTY-three acre holding near Ardee, Co Louth sold prior to auction for an undisclosed figure.

It is understood that a local person was the purchaser of the property at Roestown, near Ardee.

Auctioneer Paddy Watters, who handled the sale, had been quoting a guide price in the region of €10,000/ac prior to Thursday's scheduled auction.

Mr Watters declined to reveal the price achieved except to say that both the vendors and the purchaser were extremely pleased with the outcome.

He said a lot of interest had been expressed in the land prior to its eventual sale and he was now seeking similar lands in the area.

The holding that sold this week was described as being good land with road frontage.
