One of the bigger farms of the year has come on the market at Raharney, on the Meath/Westmeath border.

Extending to 186ac, the non-residential holding, which is currently under a crop of spring barley, will be sold at auction on September 15 with a guide price of €6,000 to €7,000/ac.

The farm is located 10 miles from Mullingar off the N4, and one mile from the village of Raharney on the L1022.

According to Dylan Murtagh of Mullingar selling agents Murtagh Brothers, the lands are all of excellent quality, laid out in six divisions. Around 180ac are in spring barley, with the remaining lands in pasture.

"This is an executor sale where the previous owner was an elderly lady who reared cattle on the lands. In later years she let the farm and it was developed for tillage but a few years in tillage will do it a power of good when it returns to pasture. In fact there is immense potential to adapt to any farming enterprise," Mr Murtagh said.

The lands are very well fenced throughout with no waste and a never-ending supply of water, thanks to the River Deel that runs through the farm.

The property is serviced by an internal roadway and has excellent road frontage.

The auction takes place at 3pm on Thursday, September 15, in the Greville Arms Hotel, Mullingar.
