A 47ac roadside farm at Foxhall, Newport, Co Tipperary, is attracting a lot of local interest. Located less that 1 km from Newport, the farm is up for auction tomorrow with a guide price of €10,000/ac.
According to auctioneer James Lee, the land is the best of agricultural ground, except for a three-acre portion, and is laid out in five fields surrounded by natural hedgerows.
There are no buildings, aside from some basic cattle handling facilities. However, there is considerable road frontage.
Mr Lee believes €10,000/ac is a fair price and is expecting a lively auction at his offices.
