Kildare parcels go under the hammer today

Coonans of Maynooth are hosting two auctions today including the executor sale of a 38ac farm with plenty of road frontage at Ballycahan, Kilcock and a 6.5ac parcel at Ballygoran, Maynooth.

The 38ac Ballcahan holding is described by Phillip Byrne as the best of good, free-draining land located 2km from Kilcock. Laid out in five fields divided by natural hedgerow the grounds are divided by the road into a 20ac piece and an 18ac piece. These will be offered for sale as lots. There is a small yard on the farm comprised of a haybarn and a collecting yard.

Guided at €10,000/ac the property is coming to auction at 3pm today, Tuesday, April 5 at the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth.

Another piece of ground coming to auction today is a 6.5ac parcel of grassland at Ballygoran, Maynooth. Located close to the Intel plant in Leixlip and Carton House in Maynooth, the holding will be guided at €12,000/ac.

With road frontage on to two roads it is primarily agricultural ground but Mr Byrne of Coonans expects wider interest in it, "There may be a possibility of getting one house on the place, but as it stands it's a piece of farming ground," he said.
