A packed auction room at Best Property Services this week witnessed the sale of 122 Acre Farm at Tullyhappy, Newry changing hands at £1.9m.


By the closing date last month, 13 bidders had expressed interest and bidding had reached £1.241M (against a guide price of £1.275m).


The 3 lots on offer were 26, 72 & 24 Acres (no residence) and by the end of the first round of bidding in lots, the total had reached £1.285m.


When then offered as one entire lot, 2 local business men and adjacent property owners swiftly took the bidding from £1.3 - £1.9m in 24 bids until the hammer fell.
