O’Donnellan & Joyce is bringing some 70 properties for sale in its ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ all day summer auction, which will be held on Friday July 21.
Some of the best houses available to people looking for family homes or investment properties are in the Newcastle area, and Colm O’Donnellan of O’Donnellan & Joyce says "six or seven properties in the Newcastle area are all within close proximity and a stone’s throw of the university.
"You are nearly guaranteed a master’s degree, such is the closeness of NUIG to all these properties," he says.
The July 21 auction is set to commence 12 noon sharp for the early session and 3pm for the afternoon session. Registration is open from 11am for the morning session and 2pm for the afternoon session.
