The 82.9ac farm at Ballaghmore, Co Laois has road frontage on to three roads

Ballaghmore is the first village you meet in Laois after passing through Roscrea on the way north-east along the former Dublin road.

Located at the foot of the Slieve Blooms on the old N7, the area is home to some fine farmland. A non-residential farm extending to 83ac with a total of 300m of frontage on to three roads is coming to online auction with a guide price of €12,000/ac.

Selling agent William Mansfield describes the place as a fine block of limestone ground in a great state of fertility, serviced by electricity and a piped water supply.

There are no buildings on the property, aside from the ruins of an old manor house, and it comes without entitlements.

Laid out in six fields, the holding is well-fenced with traditional fencing throughout, while each field is serviced by water from a private well, with a stream providing another natural supply.

Mr Mansfield describes the farm as fit for any farming purpose: beef, dairy equine or tillage.

Given the substantial road frontage and its proximity to Ballaghmore village he believes that, subject to planning permission, the place could have decent site potential.
