Dawson auctioneers in Tullow recently sold a parcel of 52.88ac of tillage ground at Rathellen, Leighlinbridge, after auction.

Located 1.5km from Bagenalstown, it is described by Matthew Conry of Dawsons as an outstanding arable farm, currently in tillage, with frontage on to the Bagenalstown Road and a side road.

The holding is all in one field and currently in stubble.

At auction, the piece attracted three active customers when it opened at €500,000. Bidding continued strongly up to €770,000 where it stalled.

The property was withdrawn from auction and sold immediately after for a higher figure. While it was bought in trust, it is believed the purchaser is a local farmer.
