Moyglare farm an adventure or investment
There was a time when people 'down the country' bought houses in the vicinity of a university either as an investment or as a way of injecting life into the 'dead money' paid to rent accommodation for their student fledglings.
A 62ac farm a mile from the university town of Maynooth might be a bit ambitious for this purpose, but the smaller of its two lots might tempt the more adventurous.
The farm at Moyglare, Maynooth, is coming to the market by public auction with a guide price of €12,000/ac.
Thomas Potterton is handling the sale with joint agents JP & M Doyle and describes the place as a lovely piece of ground. Located next to Moyglare Stud, the holding is divided into its lots by a public road.
Lot one extends to 12ac in two fields bounded by the River Rye and intersected by a stream. The land is all in grass and, subject to the required planning, could form the basis for a residential holding.
Across the road is lot two, a 50ac parcel of ground laid out in four divisions fenced by mature hedges and by a stream that runs through both lots.
Laid out in three fields the land enjoys considerable frontage on two roads with access from two entrances.
