Market picks up for smaller land parcels in Tipp

Quite a number of smaller parcels of Tipperary land located in both the north and south of the country are on the market at the moment, writes Jim O'Brien.

Among them is a 30ac holding at Ballygibbon near Nenagh guided by private treaty at a price in excess of €310,000. There are no entitlements with the property.

Located 7km from Nenagh on the Old Birr Road, the non-residential parcel of ground is described by William Talbot of Sherry FitzGerald Talbot as nicely elevated, free-draining and currently under grass but suitable also for tillage.

Laid out in one field with substantial road frontage, the farm has no buildings aside from an old shed that is well past its sell-by date.

The holding is located at the heart of progressive farming country and surrounded by dairy farms.

Mr Talbot is expecting significant local interest and with an offer of €310,000 on board he is confident a figure of €10,000/ac will be reached.

Further south at Kilross on the Tipperary border with Limerick auctioneer Matt Ryan of Tipperary town is handling the private treaty sale of an 80ac non residential holding with a guide price of €8,500/ac.

The farm has good road frontage on to two roads and is located off the Tipperary to Galbally road, 1km from Kilross, 2km from Lattin, 8km from Tipperary and 20km from Mitchelstown.

While it has been let for a good number of years it is described by Mr Ryan as in good heart,

"The lands are all in grass, well sheltered and well fenced and suited to dairy or beef production," he said.

There are no entitlements with the farm. Private offers will be accepted on the property up to 3pm on Thursday, March 31.

Grazing ground near Tipperary town

Nearer Tipp town Mr Ryan is handling the sale of a 37ac farm of land at Knockfoble located 3km from Tipperary and 3km off the N24 at Bansha.

The holding is all in grazing ground and comes with extensive road frontage. While there are no buildings and no entitlements with the farm, Mr Ryan expects lively local interest among local farmers.

For some farmers the absence of entitlements and buildings can represent a distinct advantage.

The private treaty transaction is guided at between €8,500 and €10,000/ac and private offers will be accepted up to 3pm on Wednesday, March 30.
