Coastal ‘rar­ity’ for €635,000 in Meath

Irish Independent - Farming - - PROPERTY FARMING -

COASTAL land be­tween Dublin and Dun­dalk is among the best in the coun­try. It is gen­uinely fit for any pur­pose and can grow ev­ery­thing from grass to gherkins, writes Jim O’ Brien.

A pow­er­ful piece of ground ex­tend­ing to 47ac in two fields at Lis­dor­nan, Ju­lianstown, Co Meath is com­ing to mar­ket with a guide of €13,500/ac.

Lo­cated just off the old N1 and 4km from the City North Ho­tel the farm is set on the eastern slopes of Bellew­stown Hill, not far from the site of the re­cent Bellew­stown races.

It is de­scribed by Frank Flynn of sell­ing agents Robert B Daly as made up of pow­er­ful, self-drain­ing, dry land laid out in two fields of tillage.

“The farm has 760m of road frontage and the foot­print of an old farm­house and yard de­mol­ished about 30 years ago,” he said. With the req­ui­site plan­ning per­mis­sion the lat­ter might give some grounds for turn­ing the place into a res­i­den­tial farm at some fu­ture date.

“This farm is in a great lo­ca­tion. Very lit­tle land comes up for sale be­tween Dublin and Drogheda and so it is a rar­ity,” said Mr Flynn

Mr Flynn will be hop­ing the old say­ing, “some­thing rare is won­der­ful” will ap­ply when the farm comes to auc­tion at the Drogheda salesrooms of Robert B Daly at 3pm on Fri­day, Septem­ber 22.


Coo­nans of Maynooth are han­dling the sale of a 22ac par­cel of ground at Whitechurch near Straf­fan in Co Kil­dare. The hold­ing will be brought to auc­tion in lots with a guide price of €14,000/ac.

Lo­cated 4km from Straf­fan, 7km from Kill and 25km from Dublin the hold­ing is de­scribed by Phillip Byrne of Coo­nans as a su­perb piece of ground that is free drain­ing and un­der pas­ture but suited to any kind of agri­cul­tural or eques­trian use.

Given the proper plan­ning Mr Byrne be­lieves it may have res­i­den­tial po­ten­tial. Per­haps with that in mind the land will be of­fered for sale in lots with the first lot com­prised of a 3ac piece while the sec­ond lot is made up by the re­main­ing 19ac. The en­tire will also be of­fered at auc­tion at Glen­royal Ho­tel, Maynooth at 3pm on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 21.

Mean­while, on the pri­vate treaty side Coo­nans are han­dling the sale of a 39ac par­cel of ground at Bryanstown, Co Kil­dare. Lo­cated 4km from Maynooth, the place is ad­ja­cent to Moyglare Stud.

It is de­scribed by Philip Byrne as a gor­geous piece of ground with fine stands of trees and lovely bound­ary hedges. He added that with the req­ui­site plan­ning per­mis­sion the place would make ideal place for a hobby farm. The prop­erty is guided at €13,000/ac.
