Mullingar 32ac shifts in two lots

A 32ac non-residential farm close to Mullingar in Co Westmeath was sold in two lots after part of the farm was withdrawn from auction.

Located at Loughnavalley, the farm was offered for sale in a 15ac portion of good land and a 17ac portion of scrubland.

Auctioneer Paul Murtagh, from Murtagh Bros Real Estate Alliance, knocked down the 17ac section to €30,000.

However, the 15ac portion was withdrawn unsold at €125,000 and sold immediately after the auction for a higher figure.

The farm was an executor's sale and local buyers secured both lots.
