Two holdings to get the selling season underway in south Tipp
South Tipperary recorded one of the highest land prices last year when a parcel of ground near Clonmel sold for €30,000/ac.
In one of the earlier Tipperary auctions of the new season Pat Quirke of P.F. Quirke is selling a 45ac farm at Mayladstown, Clonmel with a guide price of €600,000 or over €13,000/ac.
Located just outside Clonmel, the property has frontage on to the N76 Clonmel to Kilkenny road and also onto two other roads.
The property is laid out in six fields, of which five have natural boundaries and one is divided by a post and wire fence.
Described as "a great bit of ground" by Pat Quirke, the property has been rented for a number of years and farmed by a local man who has left it in great heart.
A yard on the property has some excellent cattle handling facilities, including a two-span haybarn, a cattle crush and loading pen.
The farm will be sold at auction at the Clonmel offices of PF Quirke at 12.00 on Tuesday, February 17.
