Fine land on banks of Shannon sure to attract dairy farmers

The southern bank of the Shannon Estuary from Limerick to Ballybunion is home to much fine farmland.

Some of the best of this is to be found around the village of Clarina. The land undulates from Clarina and travels to the river through the townslands of Tervoe and Newtown.

One such property is a 31.31ac parcel of ground located at Newtownhill, Clarina. The farm comprises a mix of upland grazing and heavier corcass or low-lying land.

Described by auctioneer John de Courcy as a nice, clean bit of ground, the property is coming to auction with a guide price of €7,500 to €8,500/ac.

Situated at the end of a boreen, the land is laid out in four fields with water supplied by a group water scheme. The holding includes a double-bay slatted shed with accommodation for up to 20 cattle.

There is a lot of interest in the property, which is to be expected given that the locality is home to many dairy farmers who are among the most active buyers in the market at present, Mr de Courcy said.

The holding will be sold by public auction at Pery's Hotel, Glentworth Street, Limerick, at 3.00pm on Wednesday, October 3.
