The two remaining unsold lots of the Burren estate in the county Clare were purchased by private sale on Friday by Wm Lane Joynt, Esq, agent to Lord Anally for £11,000. Thus the noble lord has become the owner of all the Burren estates.
The noble lord is also the owner of the Duke of Buckingham’s estate at Ballyvaughan, Mr Burton Bindan’s at Currenrue, on which are the famous oyster beds, Mr John B. Scott’s at New Quay, Sir Hugh Dillon Massy’s Broadford estate and Mr John Westropp’s at Kilkeryne. These represent, as a whole, one of the largest territorial possessions in the hands of any peer or commoner in Clare.
