Banner keeps pace in rising market

Jim O’Brien

Land prices are on the rise everywhere and the Banner County is no exception.

An attractive 10ac parcel of ground on the Lisdoonvarna Road out of Ennistymon is coming to auction with a guide price of €10,000/ac.

Divided into four fields, the land is described by auctioneer John Vaughan as "right good ground" that is watered and fenced and enjoys plenty of access on to the main Lisdoonvarna road and on to a by-road.

Suitable for grazing and meadowing, the holding is expected to attract strong interest when it comes to auction at the Falls Hotel, Ennistymon at 3pm on Friday, June 7.

Meanwhile, Mr Vaughan is also handling the sale of a 40ac farm near Corofin.

Located at Dysert, beside Dysert O'Dea Castle, the land is of mixed quality, with 20- 25ac of good grazing and meadowing and 15ac of corcas land.

Located 5km from Corofin and 10km from Ennis, the land has substantial road frontage.

The holding could also be turned into a residential farm subject to the necessary planning.
