THE birthplace of renowned author Edna O’Brien has failed to sell at auction after the guiding price of €300,000 to €350,000 was not reached.
The property went to public auction on Tuesday in the Old Ground Hotel in Ennis. The highest bid placed on the property was €200,000 and came after approximately six bids from two separate bidders.
On this basis Noel Corcoran Auctioneers, of Tipperary town withdrew the house from auction. They remain open to offers on the property and it has not been withdrawn from the market.
