While big­ger farms ap­pear to be the or­der of the day in the cur­rent mar­ket, smaller parcels are also selling.

Among them is a lovely 68ac road­side farm in the par­ish of Meanus at the heart of Lim­er­ick dairy coun­try.

The pri­vate treaty sale is guided by GVM auc­tion­eers at €10,000/ac.

Lo­cated off the Lim­er­ick to Kil­mal­lock road the prop­erty is 20km from Lim­er­ick city and 6.5km from Bruff.

It has sub­stan­tial road frontage on to a coun­try road at the edge of the vil­lage of Meanus and fur­ther frontage on to a cul-de-sac run­ning be­side the farm.

Laid out is a se­ries of up to 10 fields the farm is ser­viced by an in­ter­nal road­way and di­vided by a tra­di­tional hedgerow. The build­ings in­clude an open slat­ted shed and an old derelict farm­house.

The land is de­scribed by Tom Crosse of GVM as the best of ground and he ex­pects lively lo­cal in­ter­est in the farm.

Tip­per­ary Farm

Across the bor­der in Tip­per­ary, Vin­cent Ryan of Thomas V Ryan auc­tion­eers is han­dling the sale of a 25ac farm at Liskeveen, Lit­tle­ton.

The lands are lo­cated 2.5km off the old Dublin to Cork road and the same dis­tance from the vil­lage of Lit­tle­ton.

Mr Ryan is guid­ing the sale at €260,000 or just over €10,000/ac. De­scrib­ing the prop­erty as a very good hold­ing Mr Ryan ex­plains that the place has been re­claimed and re­seeded in re­cent years de­liv­er­ing a very im­pres­sive grass yield.

The farm is laid out in a num­ber of pad­docks and has two en­trances lo­cated at the road­side cor­ners. One of the gates opens to a lane run­ning par­al­lel with the front pad­docks.

Water is pro­vided by an ac­ces­si­ble stream that runs along the bounds of the farm.

It is ex­pected that lo­cal in­ter­est will be high given the qual­ity of the land and the lo­ca­tion.

The 68ac hold­ing is lo­cated near Bruff, Co Lim­er­ick and is guided at €10,000/ac
