Internationally renowned actress Anne Charleston, best known for her iconic role as Madge Bishop in Australian soap Neighbours, is bidding farewell to her real-life neighbours in Lisdonagh, Co Galway.

As a result of Ms Charleston returning to live in her native Australia, O’Donnellan & Joyce is bringing her Co Galway property to auction. This charming home, known as Lisdonagh Cottage, will be offered for sale in the upcoming Wild Atlantic Way sunshine auction on June 17. Colm O’Donnellan of O’Donnellan & Joyce auctioneers describes it as “the most beautiful thatched cottage that you would find”.

Tastefully restored and refurbished to provide an outstanding property of distinction, Lisdonagh Cottage has a large extension but still maintains its original character and exudes charm.
