Some prime land on offer in Dairygold country
Land within shouting distance of Charleville on the Limerick/Cork border is very much prized, especially among dairy people.
A 67ac residential farm at Sorrell, Ballyhea south of Charleville is sure to attract considerable dairy interest when it comes to auction later in the month with a guide of €700,000 or just over €10,000/ac.
Located at Sorrel, 3.2km from Ballyhea church and just off the N7 Limerick to Cork road the farm is about 7km from Charleville.
The lands are described by Kilmallock selling agent Paddy Carroll of Carroll auctioneers as the finest of land laid out in easily managed divisions that are well fenced and watered.
The holding comes with plenty of road frontage and while the land has been let for a number of years it remains in good heart.
Aside from a haybarn there are no farm buildings with the property.
The residence is a typical rural bungalow with four bedrooms, an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen dining area, utility room and a family bathroom.
Farm sales in this area are rare and selling agent Paddy Carroll expects strong interest in the property ahead of the auction, which takes place at the Charleville Park Hotel, Charleville, at 3pm on Thursday February 26.
