Fine 18ac parcel of ground in Meath withdrawn from auction
A 17.99ac parcel of ground in Co Meath was withdrawn from auction last week. The holding at Woodcockstown, Drumree was brought to market by Doyle Auctioneers, Maynooth.
Sean Doyle described the property, which is located on the Summerhill to Dunboyne road, as a fine piece of ground in an excellent farming area.
"I thought we'd get it over the line but on the day it didn't quite happen," Mr Doyle said.
The land came with a guide price of €160,000 and was withdrawn at €135,000.
A nice crowd turned up for the auction of the land which is in two parcels and all in grass.
There was limited road frontage of approximately 55m which would have been adequate for machinery access and would equally have offered site potential.
Three bidders showed interest when the auction opened at €120,000.
But when the price on offer reached €135,000, or €7,500/ac, the bidding for the farm stopped and the property was withdrawn.
