An unfinished housing estate on the Dingle Peninsula in Co Kerry is one of 90 lots due to be sold at a property auction in Dublin on Friday.

The 14 houses on three acres at Annagh Banks have a reserve of €50,000, or roughly €3,500 per house.

Elsewhere, in the village of Sneem on the Ring of Kerry, an unfinished estate of 42 houses is on sale for €500,000.

Annagh Banks was developed on the edge of Castlemaine village at the gateway to the Dingle Peninsula just before the recession hit and property prices collapsed.

It was abandoned around five years ago and remains unfinished.

The community in Castlemaine wants Annagh Banks completed and cleaned up.

Auctioneers Allsop Space are selling 90 lots of distressed and other properties at auction in Dublin on Friday. 

Sneem is a picture postcard village on the Ring of Kerry.

It won the overall Tidy Towns title in 1987 and has won a prize in the competition every year since. Ard an Oir is a development of 42 houses on the eastern edge of Sneem. It is unfinished and for sale for €500,000.

Neither the receiver nor the auctioneer returned calls from RTÉ News, but local people say the development is detracting from their efforts to regain the national Tidy Towns title.

Ard an Oir is one of 50 unfinished housing developments in Kerry and more than 2,000 nationally.
