A lady from the Curragh wanted it for horses and she opened proceedings at €400,000, a tillage man from 10 miles away and the horsey lady fought it out until €510,000 when Matt Dunne consulted with the Vendor. It was declared on the market and bidding quickly moved to €530,000, when an adjoining dairy man went in hot pursuit. A battle ensued in increments of €2,500 with surprisingly the tillage man winning the day with a final bid of €574,500 or €10,500 per acre.

The Vendor, Mr. Peter Malone was delighted with the outcome and Matt Dunne Auctioneer is now anxious to get the sale of a similar parcel of land in the area for disappointed under bidders.
