Quality 75ac in Limerick
As the auction season begins, one of the first farms to go under the hammer is a fine 75ac holding in the heart of Co Limerick.
Located near Creeve's Cross, within five miles of three west Limerick towns of Askeaton, Shanagolden and Rathkeale, the non-residential holding comes with 300m road frontage onto two country roads.
Selling agents, GVM Auctioneers, Kilmallock are bringing the farm to auction with a guide price in advance of €6,000/ac.
According to Richard Ryan of GVM, 80 to 90pc of the land is top quality limestone grazing ground, with the remainder low lying.
It is laid out in 10 fields and while the boundary fence is in good condition, the auctioneers admit that some minor tidying and reclamation works will be needed to bring the farm back to its best.
It has a natural water supply delivered by a stream that runs through the property.
The land has been let for a number of years and the sale is taking place on the instructions of representatives of the late owner, Ms Patricia Woulfe.
