A note perfect purchase

MUSICIAN, John Lyons, who once played with Van Morrison, has placed his Belgooly, Co Cork home on the market.

The house, at 24 The Meadows, Belgooly, has a perfect pitch, in a way, because it’s guided at €235,000 for a quick sale, says Kevin Kelleher of Keane Mahony Smith, Kinsale.

And while he has plans to move on (John runs a bar in Lanzarote), he continues to play on Friday night at the Spaniard, Kinsale.

A Dubliner, John Lyons has provided session support for Christy Moore and Francis Black, amongst others. But, right now, he’s concentrating on selling his four-bed house, which offers 1200 square feet of space in a lovely, village-centre location.

The four-bed semi has interconnecting living and dining rooms, a fitted kitchen with utility and four bedrooms with bathroom on the first floor. And the master is en suite.

There’s a little lawn to the front and a large, decked area at the rear with a gate to an integrated parking area.

Belgooly is mid-way between Kinsale and Cork city, so the location is good for commuters.
