Tidy holdings in heart of dairying country
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.
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
