Limerick farm with 'great potential' on the market for €7,000/ac
A 115ac farm in the wonderfully named townsland of Evegallahoo at Knockaderry in West Limerick is coming for sale by public auction with a guide price of €7,000 to €8,000/ac.
A smaller parcel of land close to the farm extending to 17ac with good road frontage is also being sold at the same auction but with a guide of €10,000/ac.
The main farm is located about 4km from Newcastle West and 2km from Knockaderry. It has limited road frontage.
The 115ac holding is long and narrow in shape and, according to Charleville auctioneer John Flynn, it is in need of attention and care but is essentially good ground.
The farm is bounded by the River Deel, one of the more prominent rivers in Limerick and known for its fishing. There is an old derelict house on the holding and a series of outdated farm buildings.
"This is a farm that might be in need of work but it has great potential as a grass farm. There are no hedges or ditches in it, it is in one field and ready for dairying, drystock or suckler farming," John Flynn said.
The 17ac parcel is located 'around the corner' from the 115ac part and is laid out in two fields with plenty of road frontage. "This is a very good parcel of ground," Mr Flynn said, "it is top class grazing land and could have site potential if the required planning permission were to be granted."
The sale is jointly handled by Sherry FitzGerald Carroll, Dundalk.
Both pieces will be sold at public auction at the Longcourt House Hotel, Newcastle West at 3pm on Thursday, April 5.
