A very good-quality grass farm at Clondavin, Co Meath that hit the market recently, sold under the hammer for just over €9,000/ac. The auction, held the same day as that of the farm in Bellewstown (page 33), had the interest of two bidders to achieve this price.

Opening at €450,000 or €7,500/ac, proceedings moved along nicely and after six swift bids, the price stood at €510,000 or €8,500/ac.
