A Sneem house previously repossessed by the Criminal Assets Bureau has failed to sell at auction.

A lot of 20 apartments and townhouses at Fairway Heights, The Kerries, Tralee sold for €1.1 million.

Six houses in Cloonties, Ballyferriter sold for €721,000, and four houses in Kerrylee, Oakpark, Tralee for €470,000.

A creche at Sundays Well, Tralee sold for €189,000; a one-bedroom apartment at The Parklands, Tralee was bought for €76,000; and lands in Farranfore sold for the €15,000 reserve.
