Lively bidding expected for coastal tillage holding in Louth
Tillage land in Co Louth continues to command a premium. Indeed, some of the most expensive land in the country is to be found in Louth and West Cork.
Maybe it is the intensity of the farm enterprises in both areas, or the shortage of land coming on the market, but farm prices are invariably very high.
Little wonder then that a 70ac tillage farm with sea views at Dunany, Togher, in the Wee County will easily reach its guide price of €11,000/ac.
Located 11km from Dunleer and 19km from Drogheda, the holding is described by Celia Lamb of Ganly Walters as an excellent farm of land that is well laid out in one block with road frontage onto two roads.
While currently in tillage, the ground is described as double crop land with free-draining soil. According to Ms Lamb, the farm could be easily turned into a residential holding subject to the necessary planning permission.
The property will be sold by public auction on Thursday, May 21, at 3pm at the Boyne Valley Hotel, Drogheda, Co Louth.
Staying in the northeast, a 20ac property at Ramonan, Ballyjamesduff, Co Cavan sold for €240,000, or €12,000/ac recently.
