The Auctioneer Matt Dunne has been favoured with instructions by the executors of the Estate of the late John Rafter to sell his farm by Public Auction.
Located in Coolnacartan, Mountrath, approximately 1 mile from the famous Hollow Church AKA The Sacred Heart.
Mr Rafter from Coolnacartan, Mountrath was a noted “Diviner” in the county. A person who can locate a source of water.
A well sunk in the wrong place can prove to be extremely expensive as you might have to bore down twice as far compared to the Diviner’s choice.
“He was worth his weight in gold,” said a neighbour, and they came from far and wide to use his gift. He also loved the stage and starred many times with Raheen Pantomime Group, a great character and is missed dearly.
