US tycoon John Malone targets Mount Juliet golf resort
BILLIONAIRE US telecoms investor John Malone said that he was looking at buying Mount Juliet in Kilkenny.
The cable television mogul said in an interview that he was also looking at buying a stud farm here. Mr Malone is the biggest private landowner in the US and recently dipped his toe into the Irish property market when he bought Humewood Castle, Co Wicklow.
He added that he was interested in buying a large tract of land here to create a conservation area similar to some of the areas he has created in the US.
