Prime Wexford land located three miles from Gorey town is attracting interest from farmers who will travel to the auction from "near and far".

"The cream of good Wexford land," is how James Kinsella, of Sherry Fitzgerald O'Leary Kinsella, described the 55ac of tillage land located three miles from Gorey.

"This farm has a great depth of soil, is well laid and has little or no waste."

The holding, currently under stubble, is on both sides of the Gorey/Hollyfort road. The boundary divides the property into two lots -- giving extensive road frontage to each.

Lot one comprises a single field of 18.9ac with road frontage on to two roads; the Gorey/Hollyford road and the Hollyford to Cranford road.

Lot two, also with road frontage, is made up of 36.15ac in two fields and includes the remnants of an old stone-built dwelling house and some sheds. Lot three comprises the entire.

The farm is being sold by its owner, John Kinsella, and is part of a renowned tillage farm in the area. Along with the quality land, the property comes with entitlements of €6,900 which will add to its appeal.

According to Mr Kinsella, there is widespread interest in the land. "We have enquiries from farmers near and far. People know that this is a good bit of ground and are willing to travel to it as an out-farm, obviously local farmers are also very keen. There should be a good prospect of planning permission on either lot given the road frontage and the existence of an old residence."
