A public auction was held at the Bee Park Resource centre in Manorhamilton, with the room full of interested buyers. The auction was held/organised by Seamus Reynolds and Sons, with five separate lots on offer.
Lot number one was for a Residential Holding of 32 acres of good quality limestone lands in Nure. Included in this lot was also a derelict two storey farmhouse, along with an array of slatted sheds and outbuildings on the property. This lot had two interested bidders fighting it out, with €125,000 the highest offer on the day. This though was rejected by the sellers, who chose to put it back on the market again.
Lot number 2 was a four bedroomed bungalow, again in Nure, located on one acre of scenic land and including a mains water supply. Again there was two interested bidders in this property, though again the seller was not happy with the offered price and the house was to be sold together with lot 1.
Lot 3 was the first two lots sold together as one. Bidders from the first two lots began to get competitive in their bid, with this lot perhaps the liveliest of the auction. It came down to two men, battling it out for the two properties. Bidding was very lively, and the properties eventually sold together for €220,000.
There were two more lots yet on offer, with Lot 4 being 38.5 acres of grazing land at Faughary near Manorhamilton. The land also included a mains water supply and fencing. This land had two bidders in direct competition and bidding going on longer than any other lot. One bidder was over the phone and the other at the auction. The bidding began at €80,000 but slowly but surely the price began to rise. The land was eventually sold for €155,000 to a very happy farmer going home.
The final lot of the day, Lot 5, was again grazing land, this time 40.6 acres with newly erected sheep fencing. This land didn’t have as many interested parties, with only two bidders in total and one backing out early into the bidding. The land in Ballyboy was eventually sold for a price of €131,000.
