Opportunity for expanding farmer at Clogheen

A LOVELY bit of ground is how Fermoy auctioneer, Micheal Barry, describes a 58-acre farm he’s selling in Clogheen at the moment.

The south Tipperary property has top quality land, he says, and is suitable for tillage or grass. Under tillage this year, the Shanrahan holding was used as a dairy farm for many years.

In fact, the vendor purchased the property initially for the milk quota, when it came up for sale in 2005.

The old farmhouse and two acres have since been sold off; now, the remaining 58 acres are being sold, as it’s just too far away for the vendor. An opportunity for an expanding local farmer, or for a hobby farmer, the property is just a walk to the pretty village of Clogheen and is well laid out.

Under the Knockmealdown Mountains, and midway between Clonmel and Mitchelstown, it’s also level and well drained.

Laid out in paddocks, it has a central farm roadway and is well fenced.

The sale includes a three-column hay barn, a slatted shed of 60’ by 25’, a milking parlour, crush, calving boxes and two silage slabs, as well as a range of useful out-offices. a silage pit, storage sheds, gathering pens and cattle crush.

All in one block and with road frontage, the property is situated off a minor road, in a very scenic setting.

This area is the beginning of the Vee route, the scenic mountain pass to Lismore.

Beauty notwithstanding, Shanrahan has good quality, dry, arable soil which is suitable for any agricultural or even, equestrian purposes.
