Coonan REA sell 68 acre farm for €1.26m

The 68 acre tillage farm at Broomfield, Ballyboughal, North Co. Dublin attracted considerable interest over the past few weeks in the run up to the auction particularly from the local farming community.

Coonan Real Estate Alliance offered the farm for sale in lots as follows
LOT 1 : Farmyard on 23 acres
LOT 2 : Lands c. 30 acres
LOT 3: Lands c. 15 acres

The lots were put up first and then the entire was offered.
Initially, the lots were bid as follows by 8/9 bidders;

LOT 1 ; Bid to €420,000
LOT 2: Bid to €380,000
LOT 3: Bid to €230,000

The entire was then offered looking for bids over these cumulatives.

Three bidders for the entire then battled it out until the hammer finally fell at
€ 1,260,000 representing € 18,529 per acre

The farm located just 1 mile from the village of Ballyboughal, 6 miles from Swords and 13 miles from the city centre is a superb tillage farm with over a mile of road frontage and five gateway access points to road.

There was a farm yard with cattle shed, crush , outhouse and sheep pen along with an old mobile home in yard.

The purchaser was believed to be a farmer from North County Dublin.

Sothern REA sell 41.5 acreas of land at Auction for €466,000

At the auction of a 41.5 acre holding on the edge of Rathdowney it was apparent that most Irish men or women still want to own an acre. Over 50 people attended the auction and there were 5 active bidders. The hammer eventually fell at a figure of €466,000 or an average price of over €11,000 per acre.

The holding bordered on one side by the Erkina River and the other side by Rathdowney Golf Club has been in permanent pasture for many years.

All of the bidders were farmers and it shows that people are still of the opinion that land is best as no more of it is being made and as a long term investment is better than shares or other funds which we have seen decimated over the last couple of years.

George Sothern of Sothern REA was obviously very pleased with the result and he feels that this shows the sound investment land is and the backbone of our economy and country
