Did you ever think you’d be able to own land in Ireland for $15?
Irish couple Ann Marie McLaughlin Sparks and her husband Alan have made that possible, setting up the Irish Landowner company in 2014.
Irish Landowner was officially launched by Irish Government Minister for State, Simon Harris and backed by Minister for Diaspora Affairs, Jimmy Deenihan in the Government Buildings at Leinster House in Dublin.
Gifts and purchases from Irish Landowner include a beautiful Celtic designed Certificate of Irish Land Ownership and a plot number for a little piece of land in Co. Donegal, Ireland.
The Irish Landowner gift also contains a stunning photograph of the land. Certificate and photo are presented in a high quality premium gift box for just $15.
This is a unique Irish gift suitable for all occasions and available online www.irishlandowner.ie.
Ann Marie knows the land well. Her family have worked the land in Donegal for generations as farmers and she is delighted and so proud to have her great grandfather Daniel Kearney on the Irish Landowner gift box. Learn more about Daniel on the Irish Landowner website.
The land is located at the foothills of Muckish mountain, in the beautiful Gaeltacht area of Falcarragh, Co. Donegal, along the captivating coastal route the 'Wild Atlantic Way.'
Falcarragh is a native Irish speaking area surrounded by the magnificent scenery of Ballyness Bay and the Errigal, Muckish and Derryveagh mountain range. The land has stunning views overlooking Tory Island.
When you register your plot number on the website (a simple name, address and plot number are all that’s required) you can visit the land any time and proudly say that you own a piece of Ireland.
The company is currently working closely with Failte Ireland, Donegal Tourism and Udaras Na Gaeltachta to develop the Irish Landowner package experience, which will give you wonderful trips to the land and surrounding areas, as well as special rates for Irish Landowner members in hotels, on activities and tours.
You’ll be able to take a boat out to Tory Island, climb Muckish (which translates to “on the pigs back!” - in Ireland that means you are doing well for yourself) , take a local Irish class or visit local sheep farmer Seanie Boyle, who will show you his wonderful farm. There will be loads for the family to do.
