Wexford auctioneer Frank McGuinness was a disappointed man last week after a 120ac farm near Duncormick in the south of the county failed to illicit a single bid at public auction.

Mr McGuinness said he couldn't understand the reticence of potential bidders as the property attracted a lot of interest prior to sale.


He confirmed he had received a few calls for the farm since the auction.

"We'll have to wait and see what happens," he said.

Mr McGuinness said the farm at Scar, Duncormick, was an excellent holding that could be grazed or tilled. The land has a guide price of €8,000 to €10,000/ac.

Located two miles from Rathangan Village and nine miles from Wexford town, the land is in the heart of Wexford tillage country.

It's currently in a mix of pasture, silage, corn and oilseed rape. The land, which is all in one block, is good level ground laid out in well proportioned fields varying in size from six to 10ac.

The divisions enjoy good shelter and while there are no buildings on the property, there are some cattle handling facilities.

The farm was offered for sale in the entire and in lots and it may still be bought in sections. The lots include one of 26.8ac, another of 52.8ac and a third of 39.5ac.
