While most Mayo natives are preoccupied with the small matter of winning their first All-Ireland in 62 years, farmers and prospective landowners between Killala and Ballina might be somewhat diverted from their sporting concerns by the private treaty sale of a nice 58ac farm.
Described by Karl Fox of selling agents Fox and Gallagher as good grazing ground with generous road frontage, the land at Carrowkelly, Rosserk is set in a lovely scenic area with views over the River Moy and Killala Bay. A short walk away is the well preserved ruin of Rosserk Abbey founded in 1440.
The 58ac property will be sold in two lots, with one section comprising 50ac of good grazing land. It also enjoys generous road frontage at its northern side and some useful road frontage to the south. This parcel is guided at €400,000.
The second section extends to 8ac and is located across the road from the larger block.
This parcel is also described as good grazing ground and is guided at €80,000.
