Cork auctioneer Dan Fleming sold farmland at Tullylease on the Limerick-Cork border for between €10,000 and €12,000/ac in recent weeks and he is hoping to repeat the performance with a 37.5ac non-residential holding in the area.
For sale by private treaty, the farm is located two miles from the village and guided at €10,000/ac.
The holding is run as an out-farm by a Kerry-based farmer who is finding the distance too far from his home place. It is described as a top-class farm and was reseeded in 2006.
The property is laid out in a number of neat paddocks that are well fenced and in great heart. Although it has been used for dry stock over the last number of years, Mr Fleming believes the farm is suitable for all enterprises.
Accessed by a laneway, the farm has an array of buildings, including a four- column round roof shed, a lean-to with cubicles and a cattle crush. The auctioneer describes it as a ready-to-go working farm with water delivered by a mains water supply.
The same auctioneer is also handling the sale of a 60ac farm located at Greenane close to the north Cork town of Kanturk.
Situated adjacent to the town, with frontage onto the street and a side road, the land was originally bought for development and is now on the market by private treaty as agricultural land with a guide price of between €8,000 and €9,000/ac.
The land is located directly across the road from the school and set on a gentle slope. Much of the land has been neglected over the years and is in need of attention.
But with a bit of work, it would make a fine add-on to an existing farm. It will retain some hope value in anticipation of an upturn in the building and development market.
