The market for dairy land in Munster has been busy since the end of the milk quota regime came into sight. While many expanding farmers have completed their investment, there is still plenty of movement in this sector.

A 106ac residential grassland farm near Ballyneety in Co Limerick is sure to appeal to both new entrants and established dairy interests. The holding is on the private treaty market with a guide price of €7,00 to €8,000/ac.

Located 5km from Ballyneety, the farm is 9km from Bruff and 15km from Limerick City. It is described by James Lee of REA John Lee, Newport as an exceptional, high quality cattle fattening holding. The lands are laid out in 10 well-proportioned fields, fenced with hedgerow and serviced by a central roadway.

There is good road frontage on to the Bruff to Ballyneety road. The ground is mainly made up of good grassland with a section that tends to be on the heavy side. It has been rented for many years could do with the touch of an owner's hand.

The yard is made up of traditional farm buildings that include a hayshed, a silage slab and some assorted outbuildings.

The two-storey residence adjacent to the farmyard is a three bedroom building that requires sunstantial upgrading to bring it up to modern standards.

Mr Lee says the holding has great potential and would be ideal as a starter farm or as an addition to an existing enterprise
