18 acres near Fermoy for €130k

An 18-acre holding of mixed quality, close to the N71 and located between Fermoy and Tallow, is still offering what farmers are seeking — land.

With demand keeping steady upward pressure on land prices, there is a good deal of interest in this property in the townland of Currabeha, says selling agent, Dick Barry, of Fermoy: “Some of the land is heavy — it’s in need of draining down at the end of it.”

The property is pleasantly situated in an area of productive agricultural activity. A derelict house offers the vague possibility of a residence on a hobby farm.

The property is conservatively priced, at €130,000 (€7,200/acre), and there have already been a number of offers.
