VIDEO: Aerial footage of 134-acre farm on Laois border

A 133.5 acre farm in Killeigh on the Laois/Offaly border will go to auction in March with a guide price of €9,000 to €10,000/ac.
GVM Auctioneers described it as “an exceptional opportunity to acquire a superb holding” which is approximately 2km from Killeigh.

This parcel of prime land is being offered for sale by public auction (unless previously sold) on the 24th March 2017 at 3pm in the Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore.

The farm for sale will be offered in lots or as an entire with the lots comprised of a 48.5ac parcel of grassland, 82.5ac of tillage ground and a 2.5ac piece suitable for a site.

The 48.5 ac in grass has approximately 1.75km of road frontage and slopes upwards from the road to an elevated height with great views of the area.

The area is renowned locally as having exceptional drainage. The portion would be ideal as an out-farm for a dairy operation or as a fodder farm. With the road frontage it could also make a neat residential holding.

A.2.5ac parcel of grass across the road from the 48.5ac has decent road frontage and similarly elevated views.

The 82.5ac section is made up of prime arable land currently in tillage and laid out in one block. Located 1.5km north east of Killeigh village, the piece is in an area noted for natural draining.

There are no entitlements being sold with this land.
With national schools in Killeigh and Clonaghadoo, and nearby secondary schools in Mountmellick and Tullamore, the location is an attractive one for anyone with a young family.

The site is also close to the N80, the main Tullamore to Portlaoise road.

Due to the variety of parcels the auctioneers are hoping the sale will bring customers from near and far when the auction takes place at the Bridge House Hotel.
