Today’s auction saw a superb roadside holding in a very attractive area come to the market. The lands at Sweetfarm are laid out in two divisions and are currently in tillage. The lands are of excellent quality and suitable for a range of agricultural uses. Either lot may residential potential subject to planning permission. Auctioneer David Quinn said that he “received a strong level of enquiries due to the quality of the lands and their excellent location close to Enniscorthy”. David added that there were more than ten registered bidders for the property.
The property was offered in the following Lots:
Lot 1: 11.24 acres
