Quirke slashes price of factory to €1.95m
Richard Quirke, the owner of Dr Quirkey's amusement arcades, has slashed the asking price for a Co Meath factory from €5.5m to €1.95m.
His company, Baycross Developments, bought the former NEC semiconductors manufacturing plant in Ballivor, Co Meath, in late 2008.
Mr Quirke's agents, PJ Broderick & Co, are now offering the 18.8-acre Ballivor property in one or two lots, with lot one comprising the buildings, car park, green area and lot two comprising five acres of land with an entrance from the Kinnegad Road. Located on the R156 road, it is 45km west of Dublin City.
It is zoned for light industrial office type use.
Earlier this year, Mr Quirke received planning approval for a major casino and leisure development in North Tipperary but the Government's proposed legislation on casinos would curtail the scale of the casino element.
