Take three farm properties in lovely Leitrim
The late great Larry Cunningham had a huge hit in the 1960s with a song called Lovely Leitrim.
His resonant bass voice rattled the radio speakers like a depth charge. Many a couple waltzed their way from the dance floor to the altar with Larry ringing in their ears.
There shouldn't be any shortage of potential suitors for a fine 42ac farm at Cartronavalley, Tarmon overlooking the picturesque Lough Allen and located 10 minutes from Drumshanbo and 15 minutes from Carrick-on-Shannon.
The farm is described by Roosky Auctioneer Gerry McLoughlin as good ground valued at about €5,000/ac. It has road frontage on the Drumshanbo to Carrick-on-Shannon road and could have planning potential with the requisite planning permission.
"It is elevated ground with great views over Lough Allen. There is an old derelict house on the property that could help in the planning process along with a series of old outhouses in various states of repair," says the auctioneer." The property is in two folios each with three fields. "This is a good sweep of land and I'm expecting strong interest."
CLOONE RESIDENTIAL HOLDING
The same auctioneer is handling the sale of a 16ac residential holding with a three-bed bungalow at Drumharkin Glebe, Cloone, Co Leitrim.
The private treaty sale of the house on 1ac is guided at €149,000, while a further 5.72ac around the house can be bought at €5,000/ac. The remaining 10ac is located about 1km away and also guided at €5,000/ac.
