CORK LAND is al­ways prom­i­nent in the early sales of the year.

This Thurs­day, a fine par­cel of West Cork ground should at­tract much at­ten­tion from lo­cal farm­ers. The 47ac hold­ing with a derelict dwelling and a hab­it­able chalet is lo­cated at Knock­adooma, Tem­ple­martin near Ban­don.

The prop­erty is the sub­ject of an ex­ecu­tor sale and is guided at be­tween €10,000 and €12,000/ac.

A road­side hold­ing, it can be sold in one or more lots and comes not only with plenty of road frontage but is di­vided by a cen­tral road­way lead­ing to an­other prop­erty. Laid out in a se­ries of fields, the ground is de­scribed by Blar­ney auc­tion­eer Dan Flem­ing as the best of graz­ing ground in very good or­der and sur­rounded by pro­duc­tive farms.

“Not only is this a grass farm,” Dan Flem­ing ex­plains, “it would also be suit­able for tillage. Much of the land in the area is used for crops over the years”. At auc­tion the prop­erty will be of­fered as an en­tire or in two lots, both ex­tend­ing to just over 23ac each and di­vided by the av­enue.

The ex­ecu­tor sale takes place at the River­side Park Ho­tel, Mac­room at 3pm this Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 7.


Stay­ing in Mun­ster, John Phe­lan of Harry Brann auc­tion­eers in Kil­laloe is han­dling the sale of a 19.27ac par­cel of ground near Portroe on the shores of Lough Derg, not far from Ne­nagh and Ballina/Kil­laloe. The prop­erty can be sold as an en­tire or in lots with a guide price of €200,000.

With dis­tant views of Lough Derg the hold­ing is lo­cated 3 kms from Portroe and about 10 kms from Ne­nagh.

Laid out in two ad­join­ing fields, the lots com­prise of 16.33ac and 2.94ac re­spec­tively. A well on the farm sup­plies wa­ter de­liv­ered through a pump­house that had a so­lar pow­ered pump in situ up to the au­tumn.

Ac­cord­ing to John Phe­lan of Harry Brann auc­tion­eers, this well wa­tered live­stock stock on the farm through­out the drought of 2018.

“The hold­ing has been let for the last num­ber of years, hav­ing been in­her­ited by the cur­rent owner,” he said. “Orig­i­nally in three fields, it is now in two di­vi­sions of graz­ing and bor­dered by some forestry. The place was also used for silage. It would make a fine ad­di­tion to any farm hold­ing.

Mr Phe­lan de­scribes the prop­erty as agri­cul­tural land that doesn’t have site po­ten­tial. He has one bid on this 19.27ac.
