Keen interest expected for Carlow tillage land
Two fine pieces of Carlow tillage land currently under potatoes are coming on to the market to be sold by private treaty. The first is a 27ac parcel of ground located at Bennekerry, Ballycrogue and is guided at €204,000 or €7,500/ac. An 80ac holding at Clonmelsh, Cloghna, Carlow, Co Carlow is guided at €720,000 or €9,000/ac.
Located 3km from Junction 5 on the M9 the first parcel, at Bennekerry, is 6km from Carlow town and described by Robert Ganly of selling agents Ganly Walters as prime agricultural land with excellent road frontage. The 27ac property is laid out in two divisions, divided by the public road. Currently in tillage and potatoes, the lands can be used for all types of agriculture. With the requisite planning permission Mr Ganly says it is an ideal location for a one off house.
The second parcel is at Clonmelsh, Cloghna, Carlow, Co Carlow and extends to 80ac. Mr Ganly describes the ground as superb tillage lands all in one block with extensive road frontage.
Located 4.6km from Carlow the ground is located approximately 1.5 km north of the Clonmelsh Quarry to the west of the Dublin to Waterford rail line and the road that links Carlow town with Tinryland.
Comprising two large fields both planted with potatoes the property has over 680m of road frontage and comes with a small yard and a hay shed measuring 200sqm. According to the auctioneer the farm is in an ideal location for a one off house, subject to the necessary planning permission.
Mr Ganly expects keen competition for both properties.
