The market for smaller plots of land continues to develop in all parts of the country.
Typical of this is a 29.5 ac plot of land with a small garden and an unoccupied bungalow in Kilcooney, Geashill, Co. Offaly. It will be auctioned with a target price of €350,000.
According to auctioneer Matt Dunne, the house has been derelict for years, but appears structurally sound and ideal for renovation.
The land is 2 miles from the main Portarlington-Tullamore road and is divided into three arable fields bordered by mature trees forming a natural belt of protection.
“The farm is ideal for cattle, horses or tillage,” said Mr. Dunne. He describes the target price as “very realistic” because the property includes a residential building, “which eliminates the nightmare of building permits”.
The auction will take place on Tuesday 11th October at 3pm at the Heritage Hotel, Killenard, Co Laois.
General purpose 26.5ac Wexford package
In Co Wexford, Anne Carton of PN O’Gorman is looking after the sale of a similar sized farm in Coolroe, Ballycullane. The 26.5ac object will be auctioned at a target price of €12,000 to 14,000/ac.
Close to the village of Ballycullane and deep in the south of Wexford, the property is 18km south of New Ross.
It is laid out in four fields; three of these are on stubble and one on pasture, while a 2.3 ac forest belt provides shelter along part of the boundary. It has limited street frontage that offers reasonable access.
The versatile plot is sure to attract plenty of interest from local farmers at the auction on Friday 14th October. The auction will take place at 2:30 p.m. on the property.
26ac Meath is on the market for over €17,000
Another 26ac holding is in Co Meath and in the private contract market. It comes with a guide of €450,000 or over €17,000/ac.
The farm is on the Kildare border at Rathkilmore, 7km from Kilcock and 10km from Maynooth.
It is described by Eamon O’Flaherty of Sherry FitzGerald Brady O’Flaherty as a prime piece of soil without an inch of waste.
The farm is laid out in four grassy fields separated by a mature hedge and fed by a stream.
One of the fields has an excellent street frontage. There are no buildings, but there are a number of cattle handling facilities near the entrance.
Eamon O’Flaherty reports strong interest from farmers, business people and people looking for land to grow.
