Standout Sales from 2011
A compact equestrian property on 125ac with top quality residence, yards and equestrian facilities was sold by Newbridge auctioneer Paddy Jordan on October 10, 2011, for €1.28m.
The property was bought by a Carlow farmer who has sold land for development in recent years.
The property included 23 boxes, two automatic horse walkers, a four-span hayshed, a lunging ring and other equestrian facilities.
The farmhouse was a two-storey, four-bedroom thatched residence.
Balbriggan, Co Dublin
This year saw a number of farms come on the market in north Co Dublin.
However, the disappearance of builder and developer buyers meant that farmers were back in the hunt for these properties.
One such property was College Farm, a 105ac site near Balbriggan.
