The executor sale of a 97ac residential farm at Clondulane near Fermoy, Co Cork should attract considerable interest locally.

The property is in two divisions, with 42ac and the house making up the home , while the holding also comes with a 55ac out-farm.

The private treaty sale of the farm, which can be bought in a number lots, is being handled by Fleming Auctioneers, Blarney and the holding is guided at €970,000 or €10,000/ac.

Located about four miles from Fermoy, off the Fermoy to Tallow road, the farm comes with an old yard and out-offices.

Auctioneer Dan Fleming describes the land as the best of east Cork ground.

"If you don't get good land here, you'll get it nowhere. This farm is located in a magnificent part of the county, the Blackwater Valley," Mr Fleming says with typical Cork understatement.

The bungalow residence, built about 35 years ago, includes four bedrooms, a kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and toilet. Heat is provided by oil-fired central heating.

While the house is structurally sound and in good condition, it has been unoccupied for a number of years and could do with refurbishment.

According to Mr Fleming the farmyard is 'of yesteryear' but includes a range of useful sheds, including a covered silage pit, lean-tos and a cattle shed.


The 42ac with the house are located close to Clondulane village and come with plenty of road frontage. Laid out in a number of nice-sized fields, the land is all in grass and in good heart. Although rented for a number of years, it was well looked after and carefully maintained.

The 55ac block is located further along the Tallow road at Kilbarry. This is described as prime agricultural land running down to the River Blackwater.

In grass and laid out in nice-sized fields, this portion has substantial road frontage and slopes gently towards the river. A fisherman's hut and rest area are located on the lands to which fishermen have right of access.

"This land could be grazed or tilled," Dan Fleming says. "Its roadside location gives plenty of access."

The holding can be bought in various lots or in the entire. The lots include the house and yards on 13ac, with another lot comprising the remaining 29ac of the 'home' section. A third lot is made up of the house and yards on the full 42ac.

A fourth lot consisting of the 55ac at Kilbarry will be offered and the final lot will be made up of the entire 97ac.
