Irish Examiner - Farming - - PROPERTY - Conor Power

With an auc­tion date set for Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 10, there should be plenty of in­ter­est build­ing for an at­trac­tive 33.6acre res­i­den­tial farm in the town­land of Colman, near Fethard, Co Tip­per­ary.

The prop­erty sale is be­ing han­dled by Clon­mel agents P F Quirke & Co, the auc­tion will take place at their of­fices on Glad­stone St. “It’s a very nice prop­erty,” says sell­ing agent Pat Quirke. “It’s sit­u­ated be­tween Clon­mel, Fethard and Cler­i­han. “It’s on the Fethard- Cahir road, but it’s a very easy com­mute to Clon­mel. You’re about 15 min­utes to Cahir, which is on the M8.

“The prop­erty has a lovely southerly as­pect, it gets lots of sun, and the farm­house is a good solid farm­house. It has four bed­rooms, three re­cep­tion rooms and is in very good con­di­tion through­out.” The house’s rus­tic charm is one of the at­trac­tions of the proper ty, with its tar­mac drive­way flanked by post-andrail fenc­ing, and gar­den at­tached. Out­build­ings with the prop­erty in­clude a fourspan hay barn, three- span lean-to, six sta­bles and stores. Ac­cord­ing to the agent, these are all in good con­di­tion. The qual­ity of land is good, says Pat: “It has some very nice fields. There are cou­ple of smaller pad­docks and a cou­ple of larger fields.”

The farm will be of­fered in lots. Lot 1 will have the house with 5.9 acres, while Lot 2 will have the re­main­ing 27.6 acres with the out­build­ings. Time will tell if the prop­erty sells as one unit or as two. The auc­tion­eer sus­pects it may well sell as the en­tire hold­ing. “For some­one who’s em­ployed wo r k i n g s o m e p l a c e , a n d wants to keep his hand in a bit of farm­ing, it would suit very well. There’s a lot of dairy farm­ing and stud farm­ing nearby, but there are also a lot of peo­ple ac­tively look­ing to lo­cate in that area.” Pricewise, the AMV is at €600,000.

Ex­pect a large crowd.
