Farm 'ideal for tillage'
OLD ruins are all that remain of the estate, but mature trees and hedgerows give some clues as to the former glory of a Co Meath farm.
The 38ac site at Kilmurray was once part of the Mason estate before it was bought by its present owners in the 1960s.
Auctioneer Thomas Potterton, who is handling the sale by public auction on August 31, said the quality land had been let for the past five years.
Laid out in five fields, it is in permanent pasture but it is equally suited to tillage, says the auctioneer.
"It's a nice farm in a lovely area, close to Trim," he said.
The land has a natural water supply from a stream and has road frontage.
However, Mr Potterton believes that the presence of the ruins could enhance the chances of obtaining planning permission to build a house.
The Kilmurray farm is one of two properties that will be offered at the auction.
