Promise oozes from 210 acres in Tipperary's farming heartland

When a farm located between Fethard and Clonmel, Co Tipperary, comes on the market, one does not ask if the land is good; this is akin to asking if the sea is wet.
A 210ac residential holding with access from two roads is for sale adjacent to Lisronagh village, three miles north of Clonmel on the Fethard road.
According to PF Quirke, of Quirke Auctioneers, the land is "as good as you'll get".
The farm and a two-storey renovated cottage will be sold at auction early next month and is expected to make €9,000-10,000/ac.
The land, in tillage for many years, is laid out in six big fields and renowned for producing excellent yields in wheat and barley.
The ground is in perfect heart, well-drained and, with its southerly aspect, enjoys wonderful views of Slievenamon and the Comeraghs.
There is extensive road frontage of around 250m onto the main road, with limited frontage onto a minor road.
