Tomorrow, Wednesday, October 12, sees the sale of a 64ac non-residential holding at Coolroe, Clonegal located about 8km from Tullow and 4km from Clonegal. This is guided at €10,000/ac.
The farm is described by Matthew Conry of John Dawson auctioneers as a fine roadside tillage farm.
Divided by the public road into 48ac and 16ac sections, the land is in four fields and has been rented for tillage for quite a few years.
The holding has an old farmyard with a derelict farmhouse and a range of dated buildings including a four-column haybarn type shed with a lean-to, a two-column shed and a lofted store.
The farm will be offered in its lots or as an entire when it comes to auction tomorrow at 3pm at Dawson auction rooms, Tullow. The following day see the sale of a c 98ac residential farm at Crecerin, Ballyconnell, Tullow.
Also guided at €10,000/ac this property is located 8km from Tullow and 8km from Shillelagh.
Laid out in a mix of 60ac of tillage and 37ac of grass the place has always been a tillage and grass farm. It is in great heart aside from a small portion that needs attention.
