Local interest anticipated for 40ac of Limerick ground

A non-residential parcel of 40ac of grazing ground located at Toomdeely, Askeaton, Co Limerick, will draw a lot of local interest when it comes to auction this Thursday with a guide of €250,000, or just over €6,000/ac.

The land, which runs down to the Shannon, is drained and fertile and well looked after. The farm is accessed by a tree-lined passageway leading to a yard with a derelict house and a cattle crush.

The property, which carries annual payments of approximately €8,000 per year, will be sold at auction this Thursday, May 23 at the GVM Auction Rooms, Glentworth Street, Limerick.

Further west, Charleville auctioneer John Flynn is joint agent with GVM in the sale of a 61ac residential holding at Grange, Newcastlewest, Co Limerick. The farm is being guided at €350,000, close to €6,000/ac.

The land is described as good quality ground set out in 12 fields. The farm has good road frontage, while the house needs a lot of attention and the yard is of the traditional type.

The property will be offered in two lots or as an entire with the lots divided by a public road. Lot one will consist of the house and yards with 47ac laid out in nine fields, while lot two will be a parcel of 14ac laid out in three fields. Lot three will include the entire.

The auction, an executor sale, takes place on Wednesday, May 29 at 3pm at The Courtney Lodge Hotel, Newcastlewest.
