  The registration fee for any lot is free and all lots will be subject to advance approval by the auctioneer. Only plant and machinery items will be accepted for this auction.

  Anyone wishing to enter lots for the auction will register online via the LSL website. Upload pictures, videos and information of their items and a member of the sales team will make contact. Those wishing to bid at the auction will also have to register online via LSL and pay a holding deposit of €250 for authorisation to bid on the day. Deposits will be returned within seven days after the auction.

  Auctioneer Ivan Connaughton said: “We are delighted to have joined forces with LSL Auctions ( for plant and machinery auctions in 2022, with our first auction on Saturday, March 19th, in Glenamaddy.

  “From holding similar auctions previously, we are well aware of the amount of administration required. The LSL Online Auction platform has been working very successfully in other locations throughout Ireland over the past two years. The system makes the process easier for everyone. For example, anyone selling or buying must register online. Sellers can upload pictures, videos and information for their items very easily online via their mobile phone.

  “Buyers can view any lot before the auction and bid online from anywhere in the world on the day of the auction. Buyers can also bid in person with a paddle board by registering on the day. Any unsold lots can be entered into a timed auction after the auction. This will give buyers more time to bid on their chosen lots.

  “The venue in Glenamaddy Equestrian Centre is very suitable, with ample indoor and outdoor space for auction lots and customer parking. Our association with LSL will market this auction nationwide, as their platform is used for livestock marts and property auctions and they have had direct marketing to 1.24 million viewers (in the last 12 months), 25,000 social media followers, and LSL News”.

Dates and times for lots entered into the auction to be dropped off to the venue and available for viewing will be published in early March. Catering facilities will be in place on the day.
