Slane sales total €404k
A 55ac farm with a bungalow and yard at Ardcalf, Creewood, Slane, Co Meath, sold in two lots under the hammer and in two lots soon after the auction. The total paid is believed to have exceeded €404,000.
The auction opened well for auctioneer Paddy Watters when he sold the first lot, a parcel of 4ac, to a local for €44,000.
The second lot, 11ac, was knocked down to another local customer for €70,000.
The third, comprising 27ac, was withdrawn at €140,000 and sold after proceedings for a higher figure.
The last piece, consisting of the bungalow, yard and 12ac, was withdrawn at €150,000 and sold in the days afterwards for a sum in excess of the final offer.
