Bag a lovely holding in Ballybrown
'Lovely hurling, Ballybrown' is a cry associated with a parish team of the same name from the outskirts of Limerick city.
The call could be modified to, 'lovely holding in Ballybrown' for an 84ac residential property which has just come onto the market in the area.
Located at Carrig West, Clarina, Carrig House, its farmyard and lands are for sale by private treaty and come with a guide price of €750,000 to €800,000 or €9,000-10,000/ac.
The holding is five miles from Limerick City, just off the N69, adjacent to Ballybrown church.
It is situated in the shadow of the famous Carrigogunnell Castle, which was an O'Brien stronghold at one time and was destroyed by General Ginckell in September 1691, following the Williamite siege of Limerick.
According to Tom Crosse of selling agents GVM, the land is good quality grazing ground that is all in permanent pasture and enjoys elevated views of the River Shannon and surrounding countryside.
Most of the land is high and dry and slopes down towards the river. However, there are also sections of what is known locally as 'corcass' land, which is drained marsh from the flood plain of the Shannon and Maigue rivers and is excellent grazing and silage ground.
The range of farm buildings include a four-column hay shed, a two-column open machinery shed, a three-column workshop, a cubicle shed and lean-to.
