Local family secures 39 acres in Kilkenny

Despite getting active bidding on the lots, a 39-acre non-residential parcel of land situated at Revanagh, Coolcullen, Co Kilkenny sold in its entirety for €330,000 at last week’s public auction. Selling agent Joe Coogan, Castlecomer initially offered the property in no less than five separate lots, which were neck and neck with the entire for most of the auction. These included 20 acres (with two acres planted) which was bid to €200,000; a four-acre field went to €60,000; a 2.3-acre parcel (some planted) peaked at €10,000; 12 acres of planted land arrived at €50,000 while the final one acre of planted land was bid to €5,000. This gave a combined total of €325,000.
