Auction season gathers pace nationwide
There is a constant supply of mid-range farms on the market at the moment in all parts of the country.
In Co Meath, Thomas Potterton is handling the sale of a 28.5ac parcel of ground at Cloran, Corcullentry, about 5km from Delvin and Athboy.
Mr Potterton describes the property as a lovely undulating piece of pasture in three fields with frontage on to a minor road and a cul-de-sac.
"It's a super piece of ground, and with the required planning permission would make an excellent site for a residence," the auctioneer said.
"The road frontage is on a grand straight stretch of the road."
As farmland, the parcel is described as the best of grazing ground and while let for a number of years it was very well minded by the tenant who has left it in great heart.
Laid out in three fields in permanent pasture, the land is serviced by a mains water supply and fenced with hedgerows that provide plenty of shelter.
With a guide of €8,000 to €10,000/ac, the 28.5ac will be sold at auction at the Property Exchange, Trim at 3pm on Wednesday, April 12.
