'An old established family farm that was well farmed for generations," is how John Earley describes a 108ac residential farm for sale at Castleplunkett, Co Roscommon. The property comprises the lands, a residence and a traditional farmyard.

The holding is made up of 60ac of good quality farmland, 20ac in need of reclamation, with the remainder prone to seasonal flooding. Overall the property is located in a good farming district about a mile from Castleplunkett on the main Tulsk road.

The residence is a sound two-storey structure consisting of a hallway, sitting room, kitchen, utility room, bathroom and three bedrooms in all. While the structure is solid and the roof is good, the house is in need of substantial renovation.


The farmyard includes a two- bay hayshed together with other storage sheds, a cattle crush and pen. The lands hold extensive road frontage onto the main Tulsk road and also frontage onto a minor road.

Also for sale as part of the same estate is a 24ac out-farm set out in one lot with an old three-roomed cottage residence in need of complete refurbishment. The lands are located at the end of a cul-de-sac laneway convenient to Castleplunkett village offering neighbouring farmers an excellent opportunity to increase their existing holding.

John Earley has a guide price of €750,000 on the 108ac holding with an offer of €500,000 on board.

The 24ac farm is guided at €125,000 and Mr Earley has received an offer of €100,000 for the holding. Going to auction is being considered.
