Local auctioneers Matt Dunne & Associates RICS SCSI have received instructions from the executors of the late Mrs Bridget O’Connor, Patrick St, Portarlington,  to offer for sale by Public Auction a 23 acre holding at Killeen, Mountmellick, Co. Laois.

The land is situated approximately two miles off the main Emo to Mountmellick Road, three miles from Mountmellick and five miles from Portlaoise. 

The auction will take place on April 8 at 3pm at the Maldron Hotel, Portlaoise. Matt Dunne, the auctioneer, describes the land as “decent quality” and ideal for a dairy farmer in the area, but its main attributes must be “it’s extensive frontage onto two roads thus offering  site potential for a number of houses, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission from Laois Countty Council.”

The land has natural springs which have offered an unending water supply over the years. A cattle crush is present which makes life easy for loading / dosing cattle.

Based on the recently published facts that land prices nationally have increased by 33% over the past two years the guide price of €9000 per acre seems very reasonable.

All information regarding the sale is via Matt Dunne & Associates 05786 233459 or
