'Best land you will ever walk' is up for grabs in Kilkenny
A parcel of 42ac of 'top class' Kilkenny land is coming to auction before the end of the month. The tillage grounds, which include a registered quarry, are brought to market with a guide price of €10,000 to €12,000/ac.
Located at Goresbridge, the lands are 6km from Gowran and 20km from Kilkenny City. Auctioneer Ed Donohoe describes the ground as "the best land you'll ever walk".
The farm is on a vein of limestone land and, in testament to its quality, the property includes a limestone quarry reputed to have 2m tons of a limestone deposit. According to Ed Donohoe, the quarry is still registered and could be reactivated.
With access to a cul-de-sac and a lane, the lands are laid out in four fields of tillage and are in the best of heart.
Mr Donohoe is expecting huge interest in the parcel when it comes to auction at the Clubhouse Hotel, Kilkenny at 3pm on Friday, October 28.
Mr Donohoe is also handling the sale of a 14.5ac parcel of ground at Garryhill, located off the Garryhill to Bagenalstown road. The parcel of grazing ground is in four fields with plenty of road frontage and is described by Mr Donohoe as "real good ground".
Coming with a guide price of €8,000 to €10,000/ac, the place will be sold at public auction at The Clubhouse Hotel, Kilkenny at 3pm on Thursday, November 3.
