Quality Galway land hits market
I have regular occasion to drive through the lovely east Galway village of Laurencetown.
Located on the road between Ballinalsoe and Portumna, it is obviously a settlement that developed around the local big house. There are some lovely cut-stone buildings and a spectacular shaded road lined with trees that becomes a veritable green tunnel at the height of the summer.
A residential farm extending to 91ac located in the heart of Laurencetown, has come on the market. Located just eight miles south of Ballinasloe and 12 miles north of Portumna, the lands will be offered for sale in several lots and come with a guide of €7,000 to €8,000/ac
According to auctioneer John Dolan, the lands around the house were regarded as prime development lands during the boom and they may still have that potential in the future.
One of the main lots is directly adjacent to the local church, close to shops and pub and just across the road from the local community hall. At present the lands are being sold for their agricultural value.
The first lot is a 26ac parcel with an abundance of road frontage.
The road frontage stretches from the village church to the main dwelling house and is fronted by a footpath. The lands are generally of good agricultural quality.
