Monaghan double to test the market
The first jobs most farmers expect to face when they buy land is ploughing, reseeding and fencing. A 50ac farm for sale at Killylaragh near Emmyvale, Co Monaghan, needs no such attention.
According to selling agent Raymond Fee of Fee and Associates, Dundalk, this farm has been fully reclaimed, drained and reseeded and is ready for business.
"Rarely does such a compact tract of land which is suitable for all farming enterprises come to the market," Mr Fee claimed.
The farm is located north-west of Emyvale just off the main N2 Dublin to Derry road and about half a kilometre from the border. The lands are in good-sized divisions and can be sold as an entire or in lots comprising 24ac and 25ac respectively. The holding includes a derelict dwelling with an independent water supply. The property was withdrawn from auction in June. It is currently for sale by private treaty and has been bid to €370,000.
Mr Fee is also selling a seven-acre residential farm at Broomfield, Castleblaney. A guide price in the region of €400,00 is being quoted for the land and five-bedroom residence.
