The controversial 150ac Thornton Hall farm bought by the State for almost €30m or €200,000/ac in 2005 is now being rented to a farmer for just €200 per month.

Initially purchased for a planned 1,400-capacity super-prison, the north Co Dublin project never got off the ground due to the economic crash.
