The Convent Stradbally Co. Laois. -€800k -44%

I guess the EA was looking to drum up some interest to coincide with the electric picnic.

Actually I know the background to this. This price drop was picked up by househunter in Laois using Property Bee. There was no involvement from the EA at all in initally, it was the fact that such a dramatic amount had been slashed from a property that prompted the story. You are giving the EA more credit than is due by suggesting that they had the energy and drive to actually cook up the story with the local press for marketing purposes!
