The property comprised of 4 rooms, and was adjacent to the now abandoned Rushes Pub. 8 miles Castlecomer, 9 miles Athy, 9 miles Carlow.

The disclosed reserve was €12,000.

The property was put up for auction on June 6th in the Gandon Inn.

Approximately 60 people attended with 11 different bidders and the hammer eventually dropped for €42,000.

The Purchaser, a Mrs. O’Neill, was delighted and looked forward to her labour of love with regard to the refurbishment.
