“In fact, it’s all of Leinster really where you see an average price in the counties of over €10,000 an acre.
“The lower end of the scale then would be Connacht.
“Mayo had the lowest price this year. It was less than €5,000 an acre.
“Munster kind of sits between the two of those.
“[Prices are] quite high, particularly in the dairy strongholds like Cork and Limerick and those areas.”
