A large roadside dairy farm with a strong reputation built up over several years in the heart of the Golden Vale.
It doesn’t read any better than that and it’s no surprise to hear from the selling agents of a 125-acre farm in the townland of Killacolla, Kilmallock that there is very strong interest.
“This would be top-class land,” says Kanturk-based Liam Murphy who is joint selling agent of the farm, along with Wheeler Auctioneers in Hospital, Co Limerick.
It is essentially a non-residential farm, containing a farmhouse and a series of outbuildings — all of which are in a derelict condition.
There’s certainly nothing derelict about the high-quality pasture land which lies just west of the N20 Cork-Limerick road; 8km to the northwest of Charleville and approximately 40km south of Limerick city.
In other words, this is a strong central location, surrounded by farming interests and with good access to important markets.
“This farm has been in the family for four generations and we’re expecting a price in the region of €12,000 per acre.”
That is certainly a strong price for any good farm in these uncertain times for dairying, but this is a farm that can be used for any farming activity and it isn’t every day that a holding of this size in such good stead appears on the market.
“The fields are fine-sized ones and the land is good and level,” adds Liam, who confirms that there has been strong interest in the property over the last three weeks from across Munster.
