'Dotey' east Galway residential holding guided at €295,000
Thursday morning saw me in east Galway walking what I can only describe as a 'dotey' little property, a 23ac residential farm at Rehan, Tynagh, Co Galway. The place is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €295,000 or €12,800/ac.
Located in fine farming country and divided by a public road, the place is situated 6.5km from Tynagh, about 15km south east of Loughrea and 13.5km north west of Portumna.
I drove with Noel Hogan of Brian Tuohy auctioneers, passing through the last villages in East Clare and heading north east to the County of the Tribes.
"There's the finest of land around Tynagh," Noel said as we passed fields already ploughed, tilled and reseeded.
There is no doubt but the land is good, with a rich sward of green grass all around and farmsteads that show all the signs of a strong and active farming community.
The property at Rehan is centred around a traditional, one-bedroom stone cottage in need of renovation but full of character with the makings of a great building project.
Behind the house is a small haggard and behind that again is a neat little farmyard with two modern farm buildings consisting of a two-column haybarn and a three-column, lean-to slatted shed with up-to-date agitation and slurry extraction facilities.
