Roscommon property developer Sean Mulryan of Ballymore Properties is in the news again this week after he and Paddy Kelly of Kelland Homes reportedly bought a total of 47 properties from banking group Citibank in the USA. The deal is worth 100 million dollars (€64.8 million). The properties are bank branches and offices spread across New York City and state. The properties will be leased back for a period of 15 years with an option for Citibank for another 15 years. The purchase was made by Markland holdings which is a joint venture between Mr. Mulryan and Mr. Kelly.
