Louth is no longer the most expensive county to buy land in

Louth is no longer the most expensive county to buy land in, according to the 2017 Irish Farmers Journal Agricultural Land Price Report. 

The wee county has been knocked into second place by the county of Armagh. 

The report reveals that the average price of agricultural land in the county was €12,584 per acre in 2017, which represented a 1% increase when compared against the 2016 average of €12,463 per acre.

Louth is one of four border counties listed in the report where the supply of land is down.

The report revealed that Louth had the least land offered for sale in the Republic of Ireland with just 783 acres for sale, down from 1.398 acres in 2016.
