A nice 29ac block of Co Westmeath land comes up for online auction next week with a guide price of €200,000, the equivalent of €6,900/ac.

The property is at Coolure, out the Edgeworthstown side of Castlepollard.

It's in permanent pasture and has road frontage. It's being sold by Murtagh Bros.

The 29ac can essentially be regarded as one field.

There are good, stock-proof hedges on the boundaries on three sides, post and wire fencing on the road boundary.


Electric fencing has been used to divide the field into paddocks.

A belt of mature trees runs from one side to the other on the crest of the field, but they are more in the style of parkland than hedgerow.

The road frontage is lengthy, amounting to 350m on a straight part of a local road, the L1826.

Online auction

The field will be sold via the LSLAuctions platform on Thursday 22 April at 3pm.

For anyone not yet familiar with the procedures at online auctions, potential buyers must register in advance and must submit a deposit of €20,000. This is payable in advance of the auction by online bank transfer.

The successful bidder’s deposit will become non-refundable as soon as the property is sold and a binding contract is entered into. All other deposits will be returned in full.

To find the land that's for sale, in Castlepollard, take the Mullingar Road, at Castlepollard Community College turn right on to the L1826, continue for approximately 3.2km and the land will be on the left-hand side.
