Jonesborough church up for sale

A former County Armagh church is about to change hands.

The sale has been agreed for the Church Hill, Jonesborough, property after a brief period on the market.

No details have emerged of the owner of the Grade B listed building which sits close to the Armagh and Dundalk border.

The church, which was built in 1856, had been marketed by Best Property Services.

The asking price had been listed as £89,950.

In trying to find a buyer, Bests had said the church had the potential for a number of future uses, but this was subject to any new owner obtaining planning consents which would be their responsibility to do so.

“This property may be suitable for conversion to both residential or commercial use,” the marketing material advised.

The building – situated on a “prime site” – was described as a “former Church of Ireland” and the property was being “offered for sale as seen”.

It is “located within the ring of Gullion along the border” and the property extends to 2,190 sq ft.

Just one month after being placed on the market a sale has now been agreed.
