High-quality Cork holding guided at €10,000-plus per acre
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.
LOUGH DERG FARM
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.
