Meanwhile, a takeaway on Mary’s St, Galway, withdrawn as it didn’t reach the reserve of €250,000.

In addition, a six storey office building on Reuben street Dublin went for €335,000 and a petrol station on the Main Street in Ashford, Co Wicklow was sold for €360,000. Other properties attracted little interest including a retail unit in Templemore Co Tipperary, which was withdrawn at €80,000.

The Allsop Space auction was delayed due to the high numbers of potential bidders queuing to get through the security checks, causing a delay of 15mins. But there was disappointment for a community group from Trim, Co Meath after a community building was withdrawn at reserve €195,000 despite their offering €100,000 to buy it.

An Allsop Space auction held at the Shelbourne Hotel in July had to be called off due to disruption from protesters. Many protestors were against the selling of repossessed family homes, but today the Allsop Space Director of auctions Robert Hoban reiterated his company’s pledge to not sell repossessed family homes.
