Rural properties large and small are attracting buyers from the continent as well as locals, customers from the UK and the US. In recent weeks, Karl Fox of Fox & Gallagher, Ballina sold a farmhouse, yard and 10ac to a Portuguese couple working in Ballina while the underbidder was a French family relocating to Ireland.

This was the first time I had continental buyers in competition to buy a property. Up to now the customers for a place like this would have been locals or bidders from the America or Britain” he said.
