I heard that back at the time he bought it, I think it was around 2003/2004.

Is it the strip of land to the west of Enniscrone? (see pic)
Have to say it looks ideal, although you'd wonder what the demand would be for 2 good links courses so close together in this part of the country. Can't see it going ahead any time soon.

It's certainly not the last piece of links land in Ireland. But it's a real struggle to get permission to build anything on links land these days.
