Located at Ballydaniel beside the village of Camolin the property is 9km from Gorey on the N11 and has good access with frontage on to the main road and on to the Camolin/Ballyoughter road.

The land is described as fine fertile Wexford ground made up of 56.5ac under tillage and 33.5ac in grass.

The property is divided into nine fields and while some of the grassland situated near a stream might need drainage the rest of the ground is described by Denis Howell of Warren Estates as in great heart.

It has been rented for a number of years to a local farmer who looked after it well.

The land is all in one block and the nine fields are well fenced. There are no buildings on the land and there is no electricity or piped water.

However, the stream provides water at one end of the property and according to Mr Howell there is an old well on the farm that could be revived.

The property will be offered for sale at auction on Tuesday, November 10 at the Loch Garman Arms Hotel, Gorey.

Kilkenny auction

Staying in that general corner of Leinster, Kilkenny auctioneer Joseph Coogan is handling the sale of a 62ac farm at Kilfeacle, Wolfhill in the southeast corner of Co Laois.

The grass farm is for sale with a guide price of €5,000/ac.

Located 5km from Ballylynan, 8km from Stradbally and 11km from Athy, the property is divided by the public road with 59ac in one block at one side with 3ac at the other side.

Mr Coogan was in Eamon Dunphy mode when he described this as "a good farm that could be a great farm" with a little investment and some tidying.

Given the topography of the area the land is slightly elevated but yet is productive and fertile. There are no buildings on the farm.

The place will be sold at auction at Ballycomey house, Castlecomer, Kilkenny at 3pm on Friday October, 30.

Grazing land auction

On the previous day Mr Coogan is handling the sale of a 30ac farm of good grazing ground at Chatworthstown, Clogh, Co Kilkenny. The land is guided at €8,500/ac.

Located 11km from Castlecomer and Abbeyleix, the holding is in two fields with laneway access.

It has been reclaimed and reseeded and with water laid on it is an ideal piece of agricultural ground to add on to an existing holding.

Mr Coogan expects strong interest when the place comes to auction at Ballycomey House, Castlecomer at 3pm on Thursday, October 29.
