Developer Buys Magheramore Lands

It’s emerged that a development company acquired the 21 acre clifftop lands and access route to Magheramore Beach  between Wicklow town and Brittas Bay, which sold last month.

According to the Irish Times, Paddy McKillen junior’s company  Oakmount, purchased the site, outbidding Wicklow County Council and several other interested parties  in an online auction on the 25th of June  last.

The site had a guide price of €210,000 but finally sold for €700,000.

According to the report, future public access to the beach will be maintained.
