Irish Independent - Farming - - PROPERTY -

LAND AT Golden in Co Tip­per­ary con­tin­ues to make a golden price. A 130ac farm sold by Ali­son De Vere Hunt of Cashel Marts ear­lier in the year made over €17,000/ac, while last week auc­tion­eer Mark Dono­van sold a 65ac res­i­den­tial farm at Ballyslat­ten, Golden for €1.02m or al­most €15,700/ac.

Lo­cated be­tween Golden, New Inn and Ban­sha the prop­erty in­cludes a two-storey, three bed­room res­i­dence in need of com­plete ren­o­va­tion, a yard with a wide range of build­ings in need of mod­erni­sa­tion and the best of Tip­per­ary ground with plenty of road frontage.

At auc­tion pro­ceed­ings got un­der way when auc­tion­eer Mr Dono­van ac­cepted a strong bid of €600,000.

Three cus­tomers ini­tially showed cause and two re­mained as the price strength­ened. At €1m the place went on the mar­ket and it sold to an ad­join­ing farmer for €1.02m.

CLOUGHALEIGH AUC­TION

Stay­ing in Golden, John FitzGer­ald of Dougan FitzGer­ald is bring­ing to auc­tion a 22ac par­cel of land at Cloughaleigh. He is guid­ing the pri­vate treaty sale at €11,000/ac.

Sit­u­ated about 5km from Golden the lands are the best of graz­ing ground with a de­cent bit of road frontage and back­ing on to the River Suir at the rear.

The land is be­ing sold as part of a con­sol­i­da­tion process and ac­cord­ing to Mr FitzGer­ald it would be ideal as graz­ing for re­place­ment heifers or for fod­der har­vest­ing.

“This is a lovely bit of ground, all in one di­vi­sion and well priced,” Mr FitzGer­ald said.
