Raymond white auctioneering are delighted to present this site subject to planning permission to the market. The property Folio no LD 15193F is a 0.202 acre site in the award-winning village. The village takes its name from an early medieval Cistercian abbey, the ruins of which still survive on the banks of the Inny. The building of the Royal Canal in the early nineteenth century, which required the construction of the architecturally significant Whitworth aqueduct across the Inny, brought increasing trade to the village until the mid-twentieth century. Abbeyshrule won the 2012 National Tidy Towns Award with a total of 312 marks. The village also claimed the award for Ireland’s Tidiest Village 2012. Abbeyshrule subsequently won a Gold Medal Award at the European Entente Florale Competition, for which achievement the Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government Phil Hogan said the village should be immensely proud. As a village geographically well situated in the Irish midlands between major urban centres such as Athlone, Longford and Mullingar, Abbeyshrule has grown popular for midland business affairs. The Abbeyshrule Aerodrome is located just outside the village, while the Royal Canal has been successfully reopened to extensive tourist marine traffic in recent years.
