A cattle dealer from the north midlands once told me that he loved to drive through south Tipperary.
"Good God," he said, "if you just opened the window of the truck and put out your hand you could feel the richness of the place."
I'm sure that man would be very interested in 62 acres at Shanrahan, Clogheen, when it goes under the hammer at Kilcoran Lodge, Cahir, on June 18.
This is a top-class piece of land laid out in tillage and grassland, serviced by its own central roadway and a modern farmyard. Located within 1.5 miles of Clogheen village, five miles from Ardfinnan and around seven miles from Cahir, the farm is well watered and well drained, bounded as it is by the Tar River.
The yard is suitable for any farm enterprise: tillage, beef or dairy. The buildings consist of a slatted unit, two cubicle houses, a three-column hay shed, an open silage pit and silage slab, a cattle crush, milking parlour and collecting yard. The property is serviced by a mains water supply.
Selling agent Christy Buckley, of Ballinhassig, Co Cork, says there is already lively interest. He has put a guide price of €10,000 per acre on the entire.
"You couldn't ask for better land. The person who buys it has just to walk in and start farming," he said.
The auction will take place at Kilcoran Lodge Hotel, Cahir, at 2pm on Friday, June 18, unless it is previously sold.
