Council sells over three acres of land for €37,000
Members of Wexford Municipal District agreed to dispose of a 3.3 acre patch of land for €37,000 at last week's meeting of the body.
Director of Services Tony Larkin said that the 3.36 acres of land at Coolree was being sold to Mary and Sean Redmond, of Maple Ridge, Coolree, Barntown for €37,336.
He said the Redmonds would be responsible for their own legal costs while the council would pay its costs.
He said the land wasn't development land and was used for agriculture.
It had been under lease for a number of years and had been put out for sale on the open market. He said the highest bid was that of Mr and Mrs Redmond.
The council voted unanimously to sell the land.
