When land in Crettyard comes on the market it brings buyers from the three counties of Laois, Carlow and Kilkenny.

A substantial farm of land extending to 102ac is one of the bigger farms to come on the market in the area for some time and is sure to stir interest in all three counties.

The holding is for sale by private treaty and comprises 40ac in the townsland of Farnans with a guide price of €7,500/ac – and 62ac in Clonbrock and Garrendenny guided at €6,500/ac.

Located just off the road between Athy and Castlecomer, the property is 4km from the Swan, 15km from Carlow, 10km from Castlecomer and 18km from Athy.

The land in Farnans, which will be sold separately, is all in one block, currently in grass and ringed by a combination of natural boundaries and stock-proof fencing.

There is good road frontage on to the local road and the land is in good heart having been very well farmed by the current owner.

The property in the townslands of Clonbrock and Garrendenny is irregular in shape and can be accessed via two local roads.

The Kileen River flows through the land, which is all in grass. It is described by Paddy Jordan of Jordan auctioneers as good fertile grazing ground.
