Estuary land is generally associated with mud flats and marsh but the land on southern banks of the Shannon Estuary can be farmed right to the shoreline.
A fine 62.5ac farm overlooking the estuary at Ballycullane, Glin, Co Limerick, is to be auctioned at the end of the month.
Located near Tarbert, on the Limerick-Kerry border and just off the N69, the property is in two lots situated about a quarter of a mile apart.
Lot one consists of 46.58ac at Ballycullane Lower and is contained in one block.
According to Tom Dillon, of joint selling agents Sherry Fitzgerald Dillon Prendiville, Listowel, this part of the holding is made up of premium quality land that has been extremely well managed over the years. It has an independent water supply, mains electricity, and on-site septic tank.
Originally farmed for dairying, there are well-fenced grazing paddocks serviced by hardcore roadways throughout.
The farm is currently used for grazing purposes and the production of top-quality silage.
The property includes about half-a-mile of road frontage on to a quiet country road and the attainment of planning permission should be possible given the existence of a derelict residence on the land.
