Gloves off for Dublin tillage
IT was gloves off in auctioneer Ronald Duff's sales room last week as two bidders went toe-to-toe for a 32ac holding of north Dublin tillage land that achieved well in excess of its guide price of €280,000-300,000.
Located at Man O' War near Skerries, the 32ac is in four divisions and it is currently in winter wheat.
Bidding opened at €250,000 and increased in increments of €10,000 to the sale price of €350,000.
That works out at just short of €11,000/ac.
