Buyers offered a choice

"A LOVELY farm" is how auctioneer Liam Mullins describes a 91-acre tillage holding at Doonpeter near Glenville in north Cork.

He says the three-bedroomed residence should fetch about £70,000, if sold separately. The land would be equally good for grazing (this area has a number of dairy farms). The farm has almost a mile of road frontage, and is divided by the Mallow road. Mr Mullins is prepared to sell the house on its own as one lot, a block of 53 acres and yard as the second lot and the remaining 38 acres as the third and final lot.

He gives a guide price of £5,000 per acre and is prepared to negotiate with any interested party.

The farmyard includes two slatted units with self-feeders, a calving house and a barn.
