Auctioneer David Quinn, Carnew and Gorey, made it two out of two when he successfully sold two parcels of land in the Gorey/Oulart region under the hammer at last week’s public auction. First up was a 91-acre non-residential farm at Ballinagran Lower & Ballylusk, Killenagh, Gorey, Co Wexford. With minimal interest expressed in the entire, David proceeded to offer the farm in two separate lots which attracted a total of four local bidders. First up was the farmyard standing on circa 47 acres. After a couple of rounds of bidding, this lot was declared on the market and sold at €300,000 to two local farmers. The second lot comprising 44 acres eventually went to the market at €220,000 and sold under the hammer for €255,000 to a local farmer. This gave a combined total of €555,000 or an average of €6,100/acre.
