Who will Get the Cream of Offaly Land?
Matt Dunne & Associates RICS SCSI, the Portarlington based Auctioneers, are putting 122 acres of a good arable farm at Newtown, Killeigh, Co. Offaly R35 CD51 to Auction on 13th June. The farm is all in grass, has been mostly reseeded in recent years, mature hedges, andenjoys extensive road frontage. Ideal for a house subject to obtaining the necessary PP.
This farm was purchased “for Tax Reasons” by the current owners (a north Tipperary family) who sold Development Land in that area in 2016. Having held ownership of the farm for the statutory 7-year period, have now decided to sell on. The original owners of the land the Cleary family (Glenisk Dairies) adjacent to the farm have continued to lease it for the intervening 7year period, and in total have farmed this holding since Mr Cleary snr. first purchased it on 16th August 1928 i.e almost 100 years. The land is in great heart, with a good depth of soil and all in one division.
The Farm is situated on the L2001 approx. 2 miles off the main Tullamore /Portarlington Road R420. Portlaoise 29km, Kildare 40km, Tullamore 9km.
The Farmyard consists of 4 cubicle cattle sheds with capacity for 214 cattle, large silage slab and slurry storage tanks. Private well and electricity are on site.
Dairy Enterprise Potential
The Auctioneer Matt Dunne is guiding what he believes to be a very realistic reserve i.e €12,300 per acre, hopefully that is enough to attract interest from outside the area.
‘The farm is ideal with its internal service road & farmyard for the dairy farmer, but this rich vein of land in this area will also suit tillage.’ – Matt Dunne –
The Auction will take place at 3pm on Tuesday 13th June in The Bridge House Hotel Tullamore.
