Kildare 68ac perfect for all farming types
A n executor's sale of 68ac of agricultural land in south Co Kildare by public auction could have far reaching appeal, the selling agents predict.
Situated just outside the village of Castledermot, the holding at Plunketstown Upper and Lower will be offered in lots at Kilkea Castle on June 29.
Auctioneer Michael Lyng, who is handling the sale, said the farm's location and quality should attract a lot of interest -- and not just from the immediate area.
The land has been in grass for the past few years but, according to the auctioneer, it is also suitable for tillage.
"We're hoping this sale will attract bidders from everywhere," Mr Lyng said.
"It is an ideal location for anyone looking for a nice piece of land or for anyone looking to extend an existing farm.
"It is in walking distance of Castledermot village, seven miles from Carlow town and two miles from the M9 motorway, and is also within easy reach of The Curragh and Punchestown racecourses."
