Lilywhite holding guided at €10,000/ac
Some interesting farm properties are coming on the market in Dublin and in the Greater Dublin Area, a region that, much to the chagrin of diehard Lilywhites, takes in North Kildare.
Coonans of Maynooth are handling the executor sale of a 38ac farm with plenty of road frontage at Ballycahan, Kilcock. The farm is described by Phillip Byrne as the best of good free-draining land located 2km from Kilcock.
Laid out in five fields divided by hedgerow, the holding is divided by the road into a 20ac piece and an 18ac piece. There is a small yard on the farm comprised of a haybarn and a collecting yard.
It is hoped to bring the farm to auction later in the year when it will be guided at €10,000/ac.
Another piece of ground to be brought to auction later is a 6.5ac parcel of grassland at Ballygoran, Maynooth. Located close to the Intel plant in Leixlip and Carton House the land will be guided at €12,000/ac.
Mr Byrne believes it will remain as agricultural ground and sell at agricultural prices. Nevertheless he expects huge interest: "There may be a possibility of getting one house on it, but as it stands it's a piece of farming ground," he said.
