The animals were declared unsold after failure to receive payment by the deadline under the terms and conditions of the original auction earlier this month.

The auctioneer, acting on behalf of Cork sheriff Sinéad McNamara, is Denis Barrett.

Anyone who has not registered will not be allowed into the sale and the “bidders (their servants, agents or relatives) that did not adhere to the terms and conditions of the original auction will not be allowed register”, the advertisement on reads.

Unlike the original auction, the Cradenhill dispersal sale (part two) requires bidders to lodge €5,000 to the auctioneer’s “client account” using your DAFM herd number as reference bidding authority up to that value. For those who want to purchase animals in excess of this value, cleared funds must be lodged to the value of the bidder’s entire projected spend.

This sale will not be online and bidders will be required to bring proof of ID and also an “animal passport”.
