Land around Limerick city is generally good agricultural ground. The village of Murroe, close to the city, is also home to Glenstal Monastery and to much good land. Indeed it is rarely you will find a monastic establishment among rushes, bogs and briars.

An 83ac farm in the townland of Eyon, Murroe, is currently on the market by private treaty with a guide price of €750,000 or just over €9,000/ac.

Located 12km from Limerick and not far from Cappamore the property is described by Tom Crosse of selling agents GVM, Limerick as a fine farm. "About 60ac of it is as good as you'll get anywhere and the other 23ac could be described as moderate land."

The lands are close to a quarry on well-drained limestone ground. Indeed the holding may have some quarrying potential

The property has decent road frontage and frontage on the renowned Mulkear River.

A yard on the property has a range of out offices including a haybarn, a lean-to and a slatted shed.

Mr Crosse says the place is laid out in manageable divisions and would be suitable for any dairying or beef operation.

At the same side of the city Mr Crosse is handling the sale of 12ac of ground at Mountshannon Road, Lisnagry.

This land is also bounding the Mulkear River, is about 8km from Limerick city and has plenty of road frontage and a water supply.

The auctioneer describes it as a fine piece of grazing ground that would be most useful as an addition to any farm. It is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €12,000/ac.

Ballyneety land for €10,000/ac

Moving from the eastern to the southern flank of the city GVM is looking after the sale of another 12ac piece this time at Ballmacreese, Ballyneety.

Situated about 10km from Limerick the land is directly across the road from the Ballyneety Golf Club and described as top class grazing ground with plenty of road frontage and water laid on.

This parcel is guided at €10,000/ac.

While these properties are close to Limerick city they are also located in strong farming areas.

Mr Crosse would be confident of good local interest in all of them.

Finally the sale of Landscape House on 78ac not far from Limerick city near Clonlara takes place in conjunction with GVM and under the hammer of Robert Ganly of Ganly Waters (GW2) at Leopardstown Racecourse. It is getting underway today, March 1 at 11am.
