East Cavan property with an orange twist
A RESIDENTIAL farm in east Cavan which contains an old Orange Order Lodge on its grounds is going to auction with a guide price of over half a million euro.
The 65.5ac farm, at Tullylorcan , between Shercock and Cootehill, has been run as a drystock operation in recent years but it was previously worked as a dairy farm.
"I'd be surprised if the needle did not go over €500,000 for the entire.
"Farm sales in east Cavan over the past few years have realised good prices and I would be amazed if this farm did not achieve over its reserve," auctioneer Peter Murtagh said.
The 66.5ac is a residential farm with the house described as "in need of upgrading" but could make a comfortable home.
The property will be offered for sale as an entire 65.5ac residential farm or in up to four lots - one of the lots includes the old Orange Lodge and a 2.66ac lot which contains an old lakeshore building.
An adjacent holding of 13.6ac at Pottle will also come under the hammer as part of the same executor sale.
It's been many a year since the Orange Lodge witnessed any marching, with Mr Murtagh describing it as in need of "considerable upgrading".
