DAA has been rejected in its bid for the 260 acres of lands situated between the runways at Dublin Airport accepted, having been told its offer of around €75 million is “not acceptable”.

Aviation tycoon Ulick McEvaddy and his brother Des, along with Seán Fox and Brendan and Orla O’Donoghue, are hoping to sell the plot of land for €210 million or more, and have not accepted the DAA’s bid for the plot, the Irish Times reported.
